I think the mentality is to trade the pick no matter what it is. This pick would be obviously put towards a top pairing defensemen or a big way two way centre. The thing is though if they are not able to get that sort of player then they should keep the pick and draft someone like Ekblad who could turn into that top pairing defender. We shouldn't trade the pick just for the sake of trading it.
