Disagree with that statement but agree with the overall idea.

I think Jones is a great defenseman but not generational (even franchise is lofty goal), but neither is MacKinnion. Both are top talents this draft year, both have the potential to be top players on the team that draft them (#1 center or #1 defenseman). So, which do you choose?
