This trade would make no sense...
Except for that this is a loaded draft, and that sort of breaks the rules of usual draft values.
Would AZ move 6 and 12 to get 4? Maybe for Michkov because he's a potential franchise forward. And maybe SJ doesn't want Michkov, but grab an extra couple of firsts to move down two slots in, again, a loaded draft, which means they could potentially be getting more elite players if they only consider that Carlsson's/Smith's ceiling is elite. St Louis trading ... like 25 and 29 for 12 would be a stretch in most years, but if this is a 2015 like draft, then you might see two guys in the 20 to 30 range that are like Sabastian Aho (the good forward, not the mediocre D - who was picked at like 33 in 2015).
"Could" this happen? yeah, it makes a certain sort of sense. It's not that far off.
Will this happen? Probably not, because there is no one drunker than teams on draft day when they like or don't like a guy because they basically just drank his koolaid for 8 weeks.
