If Staal is traded to the Canes, I'd be willing to bet the 1st rounder will be the "second piece" in the deal. An NHLer needs to come back. As much as I'd like that NHLer to be Faulk, I think he's an untouchable for the Canes.

That being said, I think the top-5 players in this draft (Jones, MacKinnon, Drouin, Barkov and Nichushkin) are all pretty close to being NHL ready. They might not help next season, but 2014 is certainly a real possibility. So if the Canes can stay in 5th, that pick is very valuable.
