Right now guys like Duclair, Carrier, Mantha, Sorensen, Fucale and such could be available in the 2nd. I'd rather have 3 of those than a Nurse or a Burakowsky.
I would tend to agree with you here but for this draft is we are drafting 8th or 9th, using a second round pick to move a couple of spot to say 6th overall would be a good move IMO. This would secure us either :

Mackinnon
Jones
Barkov
Lindholm
Drouin
Monahan

after that i feel there is a bit of a drop in the prospects (haven't seen Ristolainen tbh).

So sacrificing a second to upgrade from say Shinkaruk to Drouin or Linhholm would be a good call IMO. THat would still give the chance to Timmins to work his magic with 2 second rounders along with a blue chipper with our first
