My preference would be to draft a forward, but I'm not sure I'd pass on Jones if he excels like he should.
If we happen to be faced with picking second, and Mackinnon goes first, I'd be okay with picking Jones even though a forward is what we really need. We'd be even deeper on the blue line, but could then seriously shop Byfuglien for a solid forward prospect. Perhaps Matt Duchene (had to slip that in there).

OR! If we wind up with second pick, we could trade down a spot or two, pick up an extra second or two, pick Monahan or Barkov, then trade 2 or 3 of our seconds for a top 15 first rounder. That's sounds like a better option to me.

But hey, who really cares. If we end up picking second, it would be pretty hard for every jets fan not to be ecstatic no matter what shakes out from there.

Who wouldn't love Mackinnon though.
