Because just as much as legitimate #1s aren't traded much at all, top 3 picks are traded just as rarely.
95% chance this is what we'll see.

I've said this on the Tampa board, but I'm looking at Phoenix and Tampa Bay as trade partners this summer. Both have good foundation with a little tweaking to do to get back in it, and the Yotes are covered in D options the way TB is covered in offense.

Not to mention, the orgs are getting a first hand look at each other's prospects as their AHL teams are facing off in the playoffs. TB's Syracuse is up 2-0 on PHX's Portland.

Are there any Yotes fans who could weigh in on what kind of Purcell/Connolly/whatever else from TB or Syracuse you'd be looking at to consider a deal for some of your defense?
