Flames tried to acquire top pick
TheFourthPeriod.com

Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster has been vocal about wanting to revamp the club's roster and tried getting a head start on things by moving up in the 2013 NHL Draft.

The Flames own three first-round picks in this year's draft -- No. 6, 22 and 28 -- and Feaster is willing to part with them to upgrade his team.

In fact, during Saturday's broadcast of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada, Elliotte Friedman revealed the Flames offered all three of their first-round picks for the first overall pick from the Colorado Avalanche.

The Flames are interested in both defenseman Seth Jones of the WHL's Portland Winterhawks and forward Nathan MacKinnon of the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads, neither of whom will be available sixth-overall.

Feaster is looking to jump into the top-five, and is also willing to part with some of his roster players.

The Flames dealt the likes of Jay Bouwmeester and Jarome Iginla this season, and almost moved defenseman Cory Sarich at the trade deadline.

It's believed Sarich, Alex Tanguay, Lee Stempniak and Matt Stajan could all be dangled this summer.
