That would be 29-year-old winger Ryan Clowe, 27-year-old winger Joe Pavelski and 24-year-old defenseman Jason Demers. The Sharks pick 17th overall in Friday's NHL Draft.

That would be a pair of Swedes, 20-year-old goaltender Robin Lehner and 19-year-old center Mika Zibanejad (the sixth overall puck of the 2011 draft). The Senators pick 15th overall in Friday's NHL Draft.

However, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News tweets a rebuttal:
