The story as I've heard it was that the trade with OTT was conditional on a player that OTT was targeting not being there at #16. It's widely believed that Schwartz was the guy that Ottawa wanted by their fans and media. I don't know if that's ever been officially confirmed by the team, and I don't know if the Blues picked Schwartz first based off a hunch to that effect, but that's what is widely believed anyway.
