07:21 AM ET 06.13 | The Sabres haven't made any secret now that they're not quite satisfied with their two first-round picks. Already owning the Nos. 8 and 16 picks in this month's NHL draft, the Sabres are waiting to hear back from the Colorado Avalanche concerning this year's top pick, according to the club's director of amateur scouting, Kevin Devine. "I believe (the Colorado Avalanche) is having internal meetings this week and we'll probably get back to them at some point," Devine told WGR550. "We're waiting for a call back to find out what their position is." No surprise, he hinted at who the Sabres might be chasing. "It's either (Seth) Jones or (Nathan) MacKinnon, I really don't want to say," Devine said of who he thinks is the best player in this year's draft.

Knowing the Avs I'm betting on doggy style.

I am sure with their team they will get it next year.

Let's see, soft-more-jinxed, injured mega-sized defenceman and a disgruntled super-star goalie, for first pick over-alls, and all of the remaining Statnys. Hmmmn.

Sabres would have to empty the cupboards to get MacKinnon or Jones. Is that the best way to rebuild? Not just Miller or Vanek, but they would have to swap picks, add a couple more to entice the Avs.

In the end, is it worthwhile?

No. That'd be the Oilers. Sabres are looking to take their place now.

Dallas had 4 of the first 54 picks...

Take whatever you want, Avs.
