Good list. I am glad to see we, along with TSN, agree on Seth Jones. I guess his comments about him thinking the USA are the best team (after humilitating Canada) are also ignored now, now that he was right

I would love to see the Leafs draft him, but I am starting to conspirically think that he ends up in an American market. Potential to be the best American d-man ever? Playing on a Canadian team?! No way!

He's a nice consolation prize. Very good everything, but nothing elite. If he goes top 5, I can't see him doing better than his past Swedish counterparts. I don't see franchise\build-around player in him. He's just a very good piece to have.

What game did you watch? Because the game that I saw had him dominating the Canadian top-line, the Canadian d-men afraid to jump into the rush, him still creating offensive chances, and a complete package of size, elite skating, and impact on the game. It's undeniable.

I have to ask, do you just have something against Seth Jones? Because this list is downright scary and shows clear symptoms of denial. TSN even says he is the clear #1 at this point.

It was mentioned during the broadcast by their commentators. If you search on HF, you will see some other posters mentioning it as well.

Mackinnon was #1 before, but probably will still battle [and could upset Jones] when it is all over.
