If you can trade down from Mackinnon to Jones and gain a nice asset while doing so imo they should do it.
The Oilers have no one beside RNH who is a NHL centre. What if RNH goes down with an injury? Take the centre in MacKinnon. Schultz looks like a #1D with the way he's playing. There's also Klefbom commin next yr. The Oilers are fine with their dcore. RNH and MacKinnon would go along ways in winning championships. Marincin, Fedun and Davidson are looking great too.
J. Schultz, Marincin, Fedun, Davidson, and Klefbom will all be Oilers regulars in 3 yrs. Add in N. Schultz and Petry to complement the dcore.
