I think you buy into that theory way too much. The throw in for that kind of a deal (2nd rounder) is probably a pick where the odds of them being successful are much less.

PS I used the top guys to illustrate a point because I know their names and relative positions not to advocate giving up Jones to get Lindholm.

Probably an agree to disagree situation.
You get way more than a second rounder for dropping from 1 to 6. Remember when the Isles offered us their entire draft for the #2, and it wasn't nearly enough? I think you could get next year's first rounder just for dropping from 1 to 3 or 4.
