IIRC the original script had Sabretooth steal Logan's dogtags exactly because Magneto's machine was powered by Adamantium and they wanted to test the machine. This was probably how they were able to come about the whole switcheroo of who the intended kidnapping victim for the Brotherhood was in the eventual film.
So as has been discussed Logan would be taken and used to power the machine at the very end. There would be a scene atop the Statue of Liberty (?) at the very end where Mystique touches (kisses???) Magneto and we see him weaken. "Mystique" then morphs into Rogue. Turns out "Mystique" was Rogue all along. That's also how she gains the white strip on her hair.
Now it's been 13 years so I would be forgiven if I'm misremembering any of the details! LOL
