Also people sometimes forget the talent that Filitov was in the 08 draft, if anything he should have gone higher but we all know how the Hitch experiment worked with him.
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?
