That isnt the case. MacKinnon is projected to go first overall nearly as much as Jones. It comes down to what the organization feels they need more of. Neither one is head and shoulders above the other.

After that, its split pretty much down the middle, but when you consider four remaining spots to 10, a legit top line scoring prospect would make our forward group better than another top pairing Dman would on defense IMO.
