If the top 4 go Jones, MacKinnon, Drouin, Barkov and then JR let's it known he wants a Center to slot at 3C behind the Staals, Edmonton says to themselves "Well, we want a center and if Carolina takes Monahan or Lindholm, Calgary will take the other one and we won't get a center. We better try to trade up with them." Something like the 7 and the 37 for the 5 or something. Then Edmonton takes whichever center they want at 5, Calgary takes the other one at 6 and we take Nichushkin (who was our guy all along) at 7 and get a 2nd round pick for free.
Then, Calgary being passed over will trade with Tampa who are also high on Nichushkin who then take him at 6
