We trade the first overall to Tampa bay for stamkos straight up. Then lightning draft mackinnon, then Florida takes jones and Tampa takes drouin. They manage to keep drouin and Mack together in NHL so they can continue to dazzle everyone like they have in Halifax.

Do you think this is possible?! Would lightning move stamkos to have Mack/drouin?? Would we rather have Mack or stamkos?? Based on age/talent/pay
Never happen. Stamkos is one of the most dynamic scorers in the NHL as a 23 year old. You don't trade that, especially for a player that MIGHT someday reach the same level.
