It really depends on what you are giving up with those first rounders. Plus losing Markstrom and Taresenko isn't the most appealing option either.
Don't get me wrong, I am torn on this one because Seguin has some real promise. But his problem is that he could very well be a #1 center, and that is a deep position in fantasy hockey. Nevermind the fact that you already have two studs (Malkin, JT), AND you get to use Kopitar at center to slide Geno to the wing.
I just have a really tough time accepting the deal for another top center. I'd rather make that move for a legit Winger like Ovie or Perry.
He does have 3 forward positions in his starting roster though, so the argument against taking a C is substantially weakened. However, I am also not sure the value is there - as you asked, what will those 1st round picks bring him? Since I don't see Rundblad or Bishop being kept, it seems like Markstrom, Tarasenko, Brown and the two picks is a heck of a lot to pay for Seguin. I think the deal is too rich and would likely pass.
