Lol at everyone saying that MacKinnon isn't the consensus #1 pick. It's him and then up in the air for everybody else. Drouin making his push here only makes it harder for the #2 pick to choose between defence or offence. If you're Nashville, you go Drouin and you eventually pair him with someone who will open up the ice for him (Colin Wilson) to dangle and see who will finish (or finish himself). If you're Detroit by any chance, absolutely go Drouin with 2 or 3. You go MacKinnon #1 absolutely. He is a game changer and as I've already read, has the intangibles to bring a championship to a team while producing. Drouin is great, but he's not #1 while MacKinnon is in the same draft. He's making a great case for himself, no doubt, but MacKinnon will singlehanded win us next years World Juniors providing he is not stupidly put in the NHL (both need an extra year or 2 to complete their game [Jones does not necessarily depending what team chooses him]).
