If we're picking in the 14-18 range, I don't think it would take a ton to move up to around 8-10 and take someone like Monahan(likely NHL ready) or Shinkaruk.
I don't know. Why would another team in that range pass up on Monahan or whoever and move down 8 - 10 spots to pick "possibly" a lesser prospect? All for additional 2nd/3rd round picks. For that to happen, it would take a GM to fall in love with a player that might be considered a reach and will almost certainly still be available 8-10 picks later. In my opinion, it would take a perfect storm for that to unfold for the JETS.

If it were the JETS, I wouldn't be happy trading out of a slot where they were in a position to draft a Monahan or Lindholm type.
