Well it depends on your definition of generational

Based upon prior accomplishments, MacKinnon/Jones are likely to be a Stamkos/Kovalchuk/Kane level talent (somewhere in that range).

That's simply a cut above prospects like Reilly. You have to overpay considerably to get elite talent like that. If Toronto picks high in the draft then I'd do it if a 1st round pick is included, but otherwise I think whoever gets 1st overall would have to pass.
