You know, the more you read and watch reports on the draft eligible players, the more you want more than one of them. With that in mind, completely hypothetically and with no chance of this actually happening, what if...

The Jets trade....

1. Buff + 2013 4th rd pick... to Minny for 2012 1st rd pick (#7) + Clutterbuck + a 2013 2nd rd pick
2. Enstrom + 2013 3rd rd pick... to Philly for 2012 1st rd pick (#20) + Simmonds
3. Their 2012 1st rd pick (#9) + 2012 2nd rd pick (#38) + 2012 6th rd pick ... to Buffalo for 2 - 2012 1st rd picks (#12 & #21)

So...

Jets lose Buff and Enstrom off their roster, but gain Clutterbuck and Simmonds.

They also pick:

#7 - Faksa (C)
#12 - Ceci (D)
#20 - Koekkoek (D)
#21 - Sissons (C/W)

Would likely mean they would need to sign a Dman (or two) in FA, but fills the prospect cupboard with 1st round guys (who are most likely to actually make the NHL).

2012/13 Line-up:

Ladd/Little/Wheeler
Kane/Burmi (or Antro)/Simmonds
Glass*/Slater* (or Burmi)/Clutterbuck
Machacek/Cormier/Thorbs

Hainsey/Bogo
Clitsome/FA
Stuart/Postma
Kulda

* assumes they are re-signed.


In future (couple of yrs)...

Kane/Scheifele/Wheeler
Burmi/Faksa/Simmonds
Ladd/Little/Sissons
Klingberg/Cormier/Clutterbuck

Koekkoek/Bogo
Clitsome (or Kulda)/Ceci
Stuart/Postma
