Honestly at November of their draft year, I'd only have taken Crosby and Tavares over MacKinnon of any 1st overall since the 04-05 lockout.

Also, Craig Button is a complete and utter moron. Worst hockey analyst out there by a mile. Nobody else is questioning MacKinnon as #1 so Button will just to get hits to his website, it's what he does.
Ironically Pronman just tweeted:

Im skeptical he will go at the top slot, but Barkov has at least made it a possibility to get into such a discussion.
