Nugent- Hopkins/ Laarson
Yakupov/ Murray

If another magical scenario were to happen expect Edmonton to pick MacKinnon. MacKinnon is definitely not hands down the BPA, but has really played very well so far this season. It would be tough to pass on a player of his calibre. For those last two scenarios above I had Edmonton picking Laarson or even Murray and they didn't so I guess three times the charm.

If you are going to use the Crosby/ Ovechkin comparison which I hate, MacKinnon is more projectable as an Ovechkin type player. McDavid would seem to have more similar qualities to Crosby. ( This 15 yr is on the verge on signing an endorsement deal with Reebok, pretty amazing, lighting up the OHL so young)
