To move up into the top 3 this year would cost something you don't want to give up.

I see 4 attractive young players on the Jets: Kane, Bogo, Trouba and potentially Scheifele. Teams would want 1 (or even more) of those players in a deal for a top pick.

Question likely is - would you trade Bogo or Kane for that pick? And would Col or Florida want said player instead of Jones or MacKinnon. Once you get past #4 or later, then something might open up with #13 and a player like Buff and/or Burmi, imo.

Canes: Buff, Burmi, #13

Might get...

Jets: Skinner, #5

That might not do it either. Jets may need to add. Moving from #13 to #5 would take significant value. Ruutu would likely get it done (maybe), though not sure that works for Jets.

Tlusty/E Staal/Semin
Skinner or Ruutu (whoever isn't moved)/J Staal/LaRose



Kane/Scheifele/Skinner or Ruutu

If Scheifele isn't ready, Skinner or Ruutu move to center on 2nd line with Kane.

With #5, Jets draft Lindholm or Monahan, whovever is ranked BPA by them.
