Trade Kessel, Phanuef, etc.. Build around MacKinnon, Gardiner, Reilly, JVR, Kadri, Frattin. It'll be a strong core.
You'd also have to add the returns from the Kessel/Phaneuf trades to that core.

But even if Kessel/Phaneuf got traded, I doubt we'd hit bottom 2 in the NHL. So I think MacKinnon is a pipe-dream.

Could probably get a guy like Barkov or Monahan though.
