<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sabres89</b></div><div>I would think 12 per is about where toronto would take the 4 firsts. Honestly, we are not in any position to be throwing around offer sheets with 1st round pick(s) compensation. We are a few players away from being "in the hunt" for the playoffs, and if we dont get them and a coach that gets results, we are back here in 25th place again. Mackinnon is better than eichel, and hes one of very few players in the league that hold more value, but im not giving up 7oa and eichel for him. So no. Tampa would want our first minimum as a starter for point, and we would be adding to that and taking back salary too. And skinner at 9 for 6, i mean thats gonna be after july 1 probably (have to believe the 8th year is a selling point that he turned down) and it might be close. If thats how the skinner debacle ends im fine with it- its probably a bad ufa contract, like they all are, but we need scoring like crazy.</div></div>
MacKinnon is not better imo. Sure it doesn't look like it, but one team is in the playoffs. When the sabres get up there to being a perennial playoff contender, we'll see that Jack is better.
