Leddy is going to be a special defenseman though, a top pairing puck mover for the majority of his career, IMO, and that's not something the Hawks should part with.

Honestly one of the only guys I'd be interested in the hawks trading up for would be Monahan, but our system is so full I wouldn't want to part with much other than UFAs or prospects.
Why would middling prospects and UFA rights entice anyone in Monahan's range to trade that pick? Put yourself in the situation of the teams in that range, and ask yourself would you trade a blue chip prospect like Monahan for UFA rights and mid prospects?

Would you trade a guy like Toews or Kane (who admittedly have some more value than Monahan, but the principle holds) for UFA rights and 'ok' prospects?
