Top 10 picks have recently only been traded for Core to Star level players. I would think that short of Eriksson or Benn, we don't have any pieces to acquire a top 10 pick unless we are negligibly close to the top 10 ourselves. Jordan Staal netted Pittsburgh the 8th pick, and Jeff Carter did as well IIRC. They weren't one for one trades, granted, but it seems to take some seriously high value to get into the top 10.
