A couple of other thoughts...

I think we need to realize that the only teams that would have an interest in Hainsey and Antro are upper echelon teams that want to make a deep run in the playoffs, without taking on salary for the coming years. In those cases, the UFA status is a bonus, because they won't affect their salary cap status next year and beyond. So any notion that they could be traded to a lower team (e.g. Edm, Buff) is a pipe dream.

This is a horrible time to use picks to buy roster players, since there is a premium for useful players now, and the draft fever hasn't taken hold with the GMs. The best time to trade draft picks is around or at the draft, when other teams are salivating over some "gem" of a prospect.
