Eh, I don't think that's going to get it done. It isn't strictly about value--even a late 1st, coupled with Matt Read, should be enough to move up 6 spots--but the 1st overall is a marketing as well as hockey piece. If you go down the list, who seems likely do that move?

Couturier is the only chip we have that can get us from 8 to 1st, IMO, and even then it depends on the team (Colorado wouldn't do it; Carolina probably wouldn't; Calgary and Nashville might, etc.

That's a huge price to pay--you'd have to be absolutely certain that Jones is going to be a #1. If you think he is, then you do the deal--but there's a lot of risk.
