The only reason I'd consider taking Jones is Sore Loser's (and I think some others) point that he would also provide offense a la Shea Weber.
However, when I watch other teams play, we have absolutely no one who can consistently skate the puck into the zone and create his own scoring chance or draw so much attention that it creates a great chance for someone else. I know most of us have bought in to the blue collar, hard working, Nashville model but even though they make the playoffs they have not had much success there. I want a Tavares, Stamkos,Kane,Toews kind of guy. From what I've read MacKinnon fits that bill and maybe Drouin does too. If we draft 1, I take MacKinnon.
