With Lundqvist, you have a player who is too good and too elite that he drags crap teams into the playoffs. Without Lundqvist, you'll have a crap team battling for #1. #1 picks in today's age guarantee a franchise player to build around. I would rather take my chances with #1 picks moving forward than have Lundqvist constantly drag mediocre teams into early playoff exits. Perpetual mediocrity.
I think Hank is one of the two best goalies in the game, but without him, assuming that they get the #1 pick is nonsense. Anything could happen, but removing any player from any team in no way assures where you will pick in the draft.

Your view would be a possible valid one if we could set up a guarantee that dumping Hank would result in two #1 picks, but if there is a way to do that, I don't know it.
