I wonder if Yzerman would do:

3rd overall for Ryan Murray and a second rounder.

or

3rd overall for 9th overall + John Moore + Fedor Tyutin

That puts us back in Drouin/Mackinnon range, and both franchises rebalance themselves.
They don't have the cap space to take on 2 contracts without shedding any salary themselves.

I doubt they give up on Ryan Murray this early, too.
