Connor Mcdavid is a SPECIAL player, Mack has nothing on him IMO.
Different strokes for different folks, I'm not going to try to sell you on him. Whether he's a slam dunk 1st overall is somewhat beside the point, if you're hesitant to compare him to the likes of Tavares. Don't forget that it was neck-and-neck between Tavares and Hedman leading up to draft day. I think MacKinnon and Jones have a very comparable thing going. If MacKinnon doesn't go first overall, it's only because Jones is just that good.

However, their certainly isn't a forward in this draft I would think about taking before MacKinnon.

Looking forward to it

I'm wondering when I should make my attempt at a first-round ranking for 2013. I think I'm going to aim for December...still haven't seen enough of everyone to feel confident in a ranking yet.
