Pittsburgh had to trade Jordan Staal to get the 8th overall pick in 2012.
Philadelphia had to trade Jeff Carter to get the 8th overall pick in 2011.

I know there were other pieces involved in those trades but generally speaking...you're looking at moving a pretty big name if you're hoping to get into the top 10. And that was just for the 8th overall pick - if we want the 3rd overall pick where we might have a chance at Drouin, who knows how much more it would cost. I think we'd have to start with Subban, like ELB said.
