He was better than advertised IMO.

The guy was literally a man among boys and controlled the ice every time he was on it. His poise and positioning and decision making are just incredible for a draft age guy.

I love Nathan but really can see Jones making a hard push for #1 overall as he could play top minutes in the NHL right now IMO.
I was there too but I disagree that he could play top minutes in the NHL right now.

He was extremely poised and makes great decisions, but don't think he currently has that extra gear to really take control of an NHL level game.

This is something he can most definitely develop through experience, but I just don't think he's quite there YET.

I have yet to see MacKinnion, but I think it'll be hard to beat out an electric, goal-scoring centerman IMO.
