But yeah, the Habs aren't good enough to not pick BPA. And while Jones might not be the second coming of Larry Robinson, of an exceptionally good top 5 he's both the safest and arguably has the highest ceiling. Habs deep on D or not we don't have anyone in the system in the same league as Jones.

But even besides that, if we end up picking around 10 or something, I seriously think we should consider Ristolainen. Yes a forward should probably be priority, but after Drouin, Mackinnon, Lindholm, Barkov and Monahan, we need to at least consider D. And you can forget about Jones if you aren't drafting top 2.
I agree. We have depth on defense but outside Subban none have real top2 upside. I doubt Beaulieu or Tinordi have what it takes to become more than solid NHLers while Risto and Jones are going to be stars (especially Jones!).
