Florida already has Gudbranson and Kulikov. They need dominant offensive players a lot more than they need Seth Jones IMO.
It really all depends on who is drafting #1 overall and where we are at. But if things progress like they are, I don't think we're much more than our 1st + Couturier away from nabbing Seth Jones and it's quite possible we don't even have to give up that much.
Why would Florida trade back to #3 and risk losing out on a guy like Drouin?
They don't really need the extra picks. Their system is pretty good.
