Dunno.

Things can obviously change, but is the consensus still that the top five, in some order, are MacKinnon, Jones, Drouin, Barkov, and Monahan / Lindholm?

If the Flyers landed that pick, I'd think awful hard about that. You can still get a very good forward prospect at 5, and Gardiner is obviously ready to contribute now.

It probably wouldn't be as appealing to a team that needs a potential superstar / face-of-the-franchise type, but if a team that is ready to compete now somehow managed to land the top-pick, it might be an interesting idea.
