Blackhawks' first-rounder to the Canucks

The Blackhawks draft 18th overall, Vancouver can draft anywhere from 26th to 30th overall. Then what would it require the Canucks to give up other than its first-rounder to move up 8-12 places?

Keep in mind that playoff teams' first-rounders aren't worth as much as they were in years past. My guess would be Vancouver's first + its second.

Why Chicago of all teams?

EDIT: deleted

That said, since this draft is deep (not on high end talent), not sure why Vancouver would do this...

Also Vancouver can draft higher than 26th... that's why they play the games.

Vancouver won the Presidents' Trophy; if they are eliminated in the 2nd round, they draft 26th overall, if they lose the WCF, they draft 28th overall, if they lose/win the SCF they draft 29th/30th respectively.

Apologies, I stand corrected.

A late second rounder is about enough to move up 5 spots in the mid-to-late first, based on last year's draft day trades:

#15 -> #19 + #59
#22 + #113 -> #27 + #57
#30 -> #35 + #58

Yeah, probably something along those lines. If anything, the Hawks will be looking to package picks together to move up because they already have 2 2nds and a ton of prospects spread out throughout the world. The Hawks need to bring in some top end young talent. IMO, they should do whatever it takes to package picks and prospects together to move up or get a projected lottery pick next year.

1st rounders this year seem to be worth less, maybe scouts don't see much talent in the mid to late 1st round? As a result, I imagine more quantity for quality deals will be accepted. That being said, why would Vancouver do this? They'd be better off to take two prospects over 1 unless they're someone they're specifically interested in available at a higher spot that is obtainable.

Yeah I'd rather keep a low 1st round pick + low 2nd round pick over a mid 1st round pick. Plus, as mentioned, the Hawks have a bunch of 'extra picks' so they might be the one moving up in the draft.

They'd likely land the Flanes' or the Stars' first for the Hawks' own first and second.

Hawks would want to keep their 1st rounder unless they got another pick higher up somewhere. Bowman likes to stock up on Prospects for our future, because of our enormous contracts we need players to compliment our big guys for a cheap price.

I disagree that this is a deep draft--the drop off in talent after around 10 is big and some reports suggest that after the top 20 you are looking at long term projects as opposed to getting sure fire NHLers

thank God the Rangers have the 15th pick than! LOL

Although, I did hear basically the same thing in regards to this being a VERY SHALLOW draft year.
