Ya, Barkov is quite the talent I most certainly wouldnt mind him on our team. For my money I think if we draft first we have to go with Mackinnon. The reason is he looks to be the most dynamic goalscorer since Stamkos and I dare say we could use an elite scoring talent more than an elite playmaker (Barkov). Not that the Jets really need it, but Mackinnon is the more marketable player.

We could run a top 6 like this in a couple of years:

Ladd- Makinnon - Wheeler
Kane- Scheifele - Little/Burmistrov
