I don't think any GM will trade away their top 5 pick this season. No matter what the offer
Maybe not the last time, but when Vancouver acquired the 2nd overall pick without sacrificing the 3rd overall in order to get both Sedin's was probably the craftiest trading I can think of. That was 1999. At different points, Burke held each of the 1st 4 picks in that draft.
