The current core isn't good enough so adding MacKinnon won't make them contenders. I do not want to see the Wings turn into Calgary.
If you draft MacKinnon, I don't see the point in a full rebuild. Put him at #2 C and put Z with Dats and I think you'd be a contender. We have enough young talent to keep contending while getting younger, especially if we were to get MacKinnon.

Just thinking about getting a franchise player from the draft excites me. It would make the Wings contenders for another 10+ years. I would do anything to get a top 5 pick haha
