The draft alone won't pull this team out of the cesspool, but I'd sooner make the pick and get either Ekblad or a high end C than trade it away for spare parts. Make the pick, throw crazy $ at select FA's, and trade away some of the guys here that aren't a good fit. Acquire a lot of tradeable assets at the deadline for guys like Hemsky, N. Schultz, Bryz?, Jones, etc. and try to use some of those assets at the draft to add some bodies.
