Meh Day.... got rid of AK, but nobody else that was a UFA!

The pick we need is the 2013 first pick.... I wonder if the Blue jackets would switch our 2012 1st pick for their 2013 1st pick.... get Nathan McKinnon!

At this point, MacKinnon is the favorite to go first overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He's put up fantastic numbers with Halifax this season, with 26 goals, 39 assists for 65 points in 47 games. He's missed time with injury, but he leads the Mooseheads in scoring and is second in league rookie scoring behind Mikhail Grigorenko, who looks to be the odds-on favorite to go second overall in this year's NHL Draft. Earlier this season I attended a Mooseheads game where they were hosting Grigorenko and the Quebec Remparts. In the battle of the two stud rookies, MacKinnon came out on top, scoring five goals that game. He was an absolute beast, the best player on the ice. All of this at 16 years old.
