Florida Interested in First Overall?

Adrian Dater (the Avs beat writer) is speculating that Florida really wants Mackinnon, and is interested in moving up to take him. He is also hearing that the price is steep, and that the Avs are wanting Erik Gudbranson in the deal.

His twitter is here: https://twitter.com/adater

That's a huge price to pay to move up one spot! But as an Avs fan I'm glad they aren't going to let the top pick go for cheap.

Difference between Mackinnon and Drouin/Barkov is no where near Gudbranson.

The Avs have been using the 1st pick and saying they wont take Jones as leverage the whole time.

If Tallon gives up Gudbranson to move up one place he should be fired on the spot.

This is a pretty interesting game of chicken we have going here. If I'm Florida, I just hold pat and take my slotted BPA regardless of position.

This.

I'm very high on MacKinnon, but to move Gudbranson just to move up 1 spot to get MacKinnon is absurd.

Gudbranson + Drouin is worth more than MacKinnon IMO.

The next time Adrian Dater calls a trade before it happens will be the first time. Pay him no mind, he's quite possibly the worst beat writer in the league.

Yeah if that is the price to move up Florida would be stupid to pay it. I wouldn't be shocked is they just took Barkov at #2. Since they really seem to want a center.

That's like if the roles were reversed we were to ask for Landeskog.

well isn't it freckin obvious? If Sakic wants another pick/prospect I say hell just give it to them DT and get the top pick and make sure you get who you want.

EDIT: WOW but hell no to giving up Guds in the deal. I'd give up Robak or maybe Petro but hell no to Guds!

You shouldn't take Adrian Dater seriously if you value your sanity, this is an absolutely ridiculous idea that's entirely a figment of his imagination and has little if any basis in reality.

if the price is Gudbranson then obviously it is a non starter.

i see no reason why florida cant take drouin or barkov 2nd and feel good about it. is there that much of a drop off in talent between mackinnon, jones, drouin, and barkov?

This is just Dater trying to get Avs fan all riled up thinking they're going to make some Jesus deal. It's his job as we all know, but he's probably one of the worst gossip queens in the league. I just havent pin pointed what his username is on HF yet. There are a couple of prime candidates though..

If Avs are picking first, they'll pick a forward. Joe Sakic isn't a clown. If he says Avs are going to pick a forward, they'll pick a forward.

I guess Tallon could gamble on that forward being Barkov/Drouin.

its fine to want him, youre not gonna get him though. i want a lamborghini, doesnt mean im gonna get one. i have no problem with shore and a pick. so lets see, they dont want the top D in jones, apparently one of the forwards, say they want mackinnon then, they trade the pick to us so WE can select him and they get a D...which is the position they dont want to draft (i think its all bs). if they want mackinnon, they wont trade that pick to us.

trade the pick to us for 2nd overall + shore (and maybe an extra pick), i have a feeling if they truly dont want jones but rather one of the forwards itd be drouin. draft drouin at #2, get a young center in the process (who played for the university of denver afterall), dont have to worry about any backlash of taking drouin #1. top 3 centers would be duchene, ror, and shore. with the top line of drouin-duchene-parenteau, with landeskog on ror's wing. i think hes a perfect fit and shore would be a great "free" pickup if drouin is the guy they want the whole time.

Florida should just stay at #2. MacKinnon is not good enough to overpay because the rest of the talents suck. At #2 you still get your choice of MacKinnon, Jones, Drouin, Barkov, Nichushkin. Or even Lindholm or Monahan. Really no need to give up #2 and a top prospect just to move up 1 spot.

This isn't true.


Sakic has said pretty much to a fact that if the Avs pick 1st it will not be Jones.


We could move down to 2nd overall and take Jones. But at #1 its going to be a forward and likely Mackinnon.


And at this point, just about everyone including us Avs fans are expecting a forward with our pick. It wasn't a bluff and Sakic isn't someone who would say all of what he has said and then go against it.


Unless the Avs move to #4, its going to be a forward that we take.

Nah, the Avs trifecta of Dater, Chambers and Kiszla is the worst by far.

I beg to differ on Petro, big time.
