Ok let's say LA's pick is #20.

Draft day comes and the Oilers have the #2 pick.. they trade #2 plus #20 to Buffalo and the Oilers choose Ekblad at #1(or just give the Sabres #20 in exchange for them leaving Ekblad for the Oil to choose at #2).

That 1st is a useful piece and gives the Oilers some ammunition. The bonus with a 1st is it has no contract or cap space attached to it so it's a "clean" asset with no strings attached... very liquid.
