Great plan. Wouldn't you rather have a franchise cornerstone like MacKinnon going forward--say nothing for the metric ****-ton of cap space they'd have to attract free agents--than competing for 8th-10th place with a bunch of veteran retreads? If I'm Toronto, I take my lumps for two seasons, get two elite players in the draft, and then jump headlong into the UFA market.
