Edit: Or just to get weird. Anaheim-Hampus Lindholm+10th(sens) for the 1st overall.
The 1st overall is valuable, but not that valuable in this year's draft. Anaheim would be loopy to give up both Lindholm and the 10th overall for #1. Lindolm himself could very well end up being better than Ekblad. Also, this year I think there's a very good chance that another player outside the top 5 becomes the best player out of this draft.

Florida is smart to look for a big pay-off for the #1 pick this year, but other teams should be wary.
