I disagree on this...I think you need to be in the top 2-3 this year especially for what we need. If you have any hope of keeping Vanek you need to put him with a stud. Getting to the #2 pick and landing Mackinnon will IMO keep him happy as you can say that you got him the premier setup man available. Plus that makes our scoring lines very scary:

Vanek - MacKinnon - Leino
Ennis - Hodgson - Stafford/Foligno
Ott - Grigorenko - Armia

Imagine if they signed Horton...and bought out Leino...
