I agree 100%... but I think any GM takes Nate anyways due to the hype. Whether Jones, Barkov, Monahan, Drouin or anyone may turn out to be better.. Nathan is Nathan, the media has focused on him so much. The fans adore him and want him to play for their team and the GMs know this. I think you have to take Nate 1st regardless of the best player available, which he most likely is, or reeeeeaaaaallllly risk losing fans and possible sales. No doubt in my mind that MacKinnon jerseys are gonna sell out within a week of being put out. Not worth the risk.
