What would it take to get two first rounders?

The Wild are set to pick 7th in this years draft while Tampa Bay holds the 10th and 19th picks. Its obvious the Wild need to draft a defenseman in the first round and with the amount of depth at the position why not trade down and get two defenseman or possibly another skill player instead.

Looking at most mock drafts there is a lot to like available at number 10 but there is even more to like that is left at 19. If the Wild traded down one of these defenseman would still be there: Ceci, Dumba, Rielly, Reinhart, or Trouba. Then at 19 you are still looking at a quality prospect like Koekkoek, Skjei, or Finn (Colberg if were lucky). The question is what would it take to get these picks? Tampa needs goaltending and defense just like us so it may be unlikely they part with there picks. On the other hand we do have a lot of goaltending prospects (almost too many) and we do have a few bottom 3 d-man to dangle as bait. They have made quite a few moves for goalies already this offseason so I think they would be looking for a guy like Justin Falk instead. If we offered #7 and a 2nd with Falk for there two numbers ones they might be interested. Imagine picking up a Ceci or Trouba to go along with Skjei or Colberg. Dream draft. The Wild need defensive prospects, lets get it down.
