Monahan would be a no brainer at 8th I think. Personally I feel like after Monahan is where there's a slight dropoff in caliber to the 8-15 range.

Thinking a more immediate return than a draft pick who may need a year or 2 to start much less be top line ready?

the player may be older than our core age group (27+), but could step in immediately and help this team in October 2013.
Trading our 1st doesn't make sense unless we can show that we're going to play well with consistency before the deadline and then only for another young player 22/23 which I'm not certain that another team would be willing to do.
