Just keep the pick and draft high (whether it's 1,2,3,4,5). The only assets this team has that are decent are those high picks they've accumulated (plus Eberle) and there is nothing they'll get in return for say that 4th or 5th pick that's going to turn this team around on a dime.
They definitely need more help going forward in terms of solid talent (as evidenced by their roster and lack of depth among their forwards in the Oilers prospect pool).
Adding a talent like Bennett/Ritchie/Virtanen (even if they draft 3/4/5) is a solid move and I have no faith that what they will obtain by trading that pick will be a significant asset on this team in 3-4 years.
