C) Try to trade down to #2 overall to draft Seth Jones while picking up maybe an extra 2nd round pick
if the flyers somehow ended up with the 1st overall pick and DIDNT pick Seth Jones, i would go berserk.

i know MacKinnon is extremely talented, but I'm really not entirely sold on him being the next sidney crosby. but hey, maybe if we did draft MacKinnon, we could trade some otherwise valuable pieces for a top defenseman. Maybe trade Brayden Schenn + and get the 2nd overall pick as well, and draft MacKinnon AND Jones. that would be glorious. and then sign Corey Perry in the offseason with Timonens freed up cap space.

Perry - Giroux - Voracek
Hartnell - MacKinnon - Briere
Simmonds - Couturier - Read
Fedetenko - Talbot - Sestito

Coburn - Jones
Meszaros - Schenn
Grossmann - Gustafsson

only problem with that is, if you trade one of the schenns, you probably have to trade both of them now that you have both haha. you'll create a resentful remaining schenn.
