Draft Jones/MacKinnon with the 1st.

Package the 1st from the Bouwmeester deal along with the 2nd from Kiprusoff's deal and move just inside the top 10.

Package the Pittsburgh pick with two 3rd rounders to move just inside the top 20. Maybe a guy like Lazar or Shinkaruk falls a bit and we pick him up.

In summary:

Nicushkin, Monohan, Lindholm


Pulock, Ristolainen, Nurse

Talk about accelerated rebuild.
Lets say for the fun of it we get 1st overall. Would you be against trading down? Philly is going to be pretty desperate to get Jones. Lets say they have the 5th pick would you do Couts + 5th overall for 1st + 3rd?

Potentially we get

Basically we set our franchises center depth up for the next generation but give up a shot at a #1 defenseman.
