Some Kevy quotes, I am paraphrasing:

"The best player in the draft is either MacKinnon or Jones"
"We called to Colorado yesterday, and will continue to talk to them over the next weeks"
"We've talked to every team out of the playoffs, notably every team with a draft pick ahead of us"
"Colorado may not move from 8 to 1, we discussed the two last days the Brian-Burke-1999-eske hopping strategy"
"Trading up sounds like it may cost some of our young guys, so we'll need to determine the value there"

Basically, they're talking about what we in this thread are talking about, and it sounds like they're keeping an open mind. Bring MacKinnon to Buffalo.


Try to keep as much as that core as possible, add MacKinnon (and others), and build a champion.
I would add Hodgson and Ennis to that list of young guys teams will be trying to pry from us. Sounds like Vanek to Nashville isn't really in the cards. We're going to have to make friends with trading some guys that we really like in order to get there.
