I have no idea if that's reasonable, but if PHX was wiling to part with their 1st and Rundblad to move up, I think it would be hard for DET to beat it.

I'm opposed to moving down if Barkov is on the board (if, say, CAR takes Nurse at #4, which is possible). Even though we are loaded at center, I think he's a real difference maker. Maybe it means Laughton or Couturier get dealt, or that Schenn really has to play the wing, but that's not a bad position to be in. I haven't seen enough of Lindholm to make a judgment, but I'm not 100 percent sold on Monahan's offensive upside, given that we already have Laughton and Couturier.
