Their offer was to the Blue Jackets for the 2nd pick.

I agree, we wouldn't get into the top 5 by offering all of our picks.

Look at it from this perspective...at last year's draft, would you have traded the 3rd overall for a late 1st and a bunch of other picks? I sure wouldn't have. The teams that finish at the bottom will want to draft that stud prospect who could play next fall instead of getting a few lottery tickets.
