Not surprised both Mackinnon and Drouin are special players and about half the sites I have seen have Drouin ranked above Mackinnon.

1. Trade Cammalleri for Ottawas 1st(20) on draft day
2. Trade Stl 1st(19) and Pitt 1st(30) to NSH for 1st(12) (roughly same deal Feaster took last year)
3. Draft 3rd (MacKinnon), 12th(Morrissey) and 20th(Hagg).

Ottawa isn't going to trade a first for Cammy

I was looking over this yesterday.
#2 is one that might be possible. I'd rather move the Pittsburgh pick along with a roster player not named Mikael, TJ or Sven. Maybe Tanguay? Nashville looks pathetic on left wing.

Ottawa doesn't make that deal.

Him as in the 1st? Ottawa is unlikely to move that pick, the franchise is not a buyer.

If we don't take a center this draft I will lose it. And from what I've seen, Drouin plays LW. He's a great player but we need a center.

Never draft by need always draft BPA, if all our scouts say Drouin is the best then take Drouin worry about need in signings and trades.

The gap between the two isn't big enough to take Drouin over him imo. We haven't had a top line center for too damn long and if there is a winger and center both available that project as top line players why would we take the winger? Especially if he plays a position we are strong at?

Outside of Sven we don't have a sure thing at LW (Even Sven isn't 100%). I would take Drouin and just use him on the RW if need be. Again if the scouts see a clear separation between the two (reminds me of Kane and Gagner) then I take the better one.

Who gives a **** about the wing. You build your forwards down the middle first. Look at the center depth of the last 3 Stanley cup winners. Can't be any clearer.

Funny Turris was ranked #1 for NA skaters the Blackhawks took Kane, looks like they went BPA according to their scouts.

Tanguay? Glencross? Cammalleri?. And why force Drouin to another position? From what I've heard he's played primarily LW his career.

So 30 year old Glencross, 30 year old Cammy, and 33 year old Tanguay are the reasons for you not to draft a LWer these are your long term solutions.

Agreed. The best way to get a #1 Center is to draft one, and we haven't had one in a long time.

That and the fact that 3 of our best prospects also play LW in Baertschi, Gaudreau and Agostino. If Feaster drafts Drouin with MacKinnon still available, I bet I wouldn't be the only unhappy Flames fan.

Plus when our management has been told by ownership that they want to make the playoffs next year, your not going to give up a player who fills a huge need for a player who might be a bit better.

How do you know Chicago didn't have Kane ranked above Turris?

Ya I mis read his post. Not sure how Turris was ranked so high. Calgary could have Drouin ranked 5th on their list come July.

Exactly. I read in The Hockey News that feaster said there was players chose in the first round of the 2012 Draft that they wouldn't of taken in any round..
I just have an odd feeling that a player not named in the top 5 (Lindholm) is who we call with the 3 overall pick or whatever we end up with

It was in the future watch magazine. Ill find a link

Edit: I can not find a link, since it is in a magazine. But it's on the pages where they are talking about some players booming and some busting. And it pulls it out of the page with a picture of feaster and Weisbrod and it says something like "Flames management said that there was players taken in the first round of the 2012 Draft that they wouldn't have taken in any round"
