MacKinnon over Jones 30 out of 30 times. Jones is a great prospect, but he's the number 2 prospect in this draft.
Jones to Mackinnon is nothing like Hedman to Tavares or Crosby to JJ.

There are plenty of rankings that have Jones over Mackinnon. I think who gets drafted first will be based on positional needs.(Ex. Columbus-Mackinnon, Edmonton-Jones)

Not that it matters. If we can get anyone of the top-10 picks in this draft, I would be extremely happy(unless of course it's because we stunk in the season as opposed to lottery/other teams pick from a Luongo trade)
