I could trade Miikka Kiprusoff and my 6th round pick in the 2008 draft, for Josh's Nikolai Khabibulin and his 1st pick in the 2008 draft. (Thus, giving him the better goaltender, but giving me two first round picks the following season).
I think it would be best if draft picks were always traded in equal quantity since we have maximum roster sizes and you don't want anyone to end up drafting more people than they can even carry on a roster. Having this option available would allow contenders to make a push for the playoffs, while giving the underdog teams a chance to fight back with better draft picks in the following season. What do you guys think?
