1st pick and 3rd rounder in 13 or 14

Get at least a solid pause or chance of being excepted?

I know everyone thinks it will take more but your getting a top 6 top 4 and still basically a top 10 pick. I'm sure they'd prefer The forward to be a top 3.

But is this proposal really that off?
What are your thoughts on what you think it would take?
There is no way in hell Colorado would do that trade. First of all, Colorado would not add a third rounder to the deal. Second of all, why would they take as a centerpeice for the deal a guy who is a UFA and epxecting what will likely be a large raise (what would the conditional pick be...if it is not a first don't even bother), while at the same time dropping ten places in the draft and likely missing out on all the blue-chip prospect.

Would you trde #1 overall (plus a third) for that? I know I wouldn't.
