Needs:

Center? Check.

Physicality? Not really.

Defensively responsible? Not really.

He'd be good, and I think we're probably out of the top 5 with him in the lineup, but no guarantee of a contract and not enough of a difference maker to vault us into the playoffs and I say pass.

Buffalo's 2015 first could be had for MacKinnon.

Probably little else.

Really, I think the query is just occurring to the OP that these draft picks could be valuable, but Buffalo fans have been planning and hoping for this tank for more than a year now with the explicit objective of putting ourselves in position to land McDavid or (considering the lottery) his close second Eichel. It's the plan that makes the franchise at this point. We'd need a high end franchise player coming back to talk us out of it.

So the Sabres trade their 2015 first for MacKinnon, draft Reinhart in 2014 and win the 2015 lottery with the Isles pick.

Fantasy I know.

I agree though that MacKinnon would be one of the few players I would consider trading the pick for and Colorado has no reason to take that risk.
