My new top 3 as of today are:

1. Jones (clear #1)
2. Drouin
3. Mackinnon

I moved Drouin ahead of Mac, every game I have watched with these 2 in it, he has outshone Mackinnon. I am starting to feel Mackinnon has stagnated whereas Jones and Drouin have progressed and moved passed him.

For all the hyperbole of Drouin's lack of size by really only one poster, he is essentially the same size of Mackinnon.

I am uneasy having Mackinnon play a physical style against men, Crosby has been hurt, and even going back to the Leafs days Clark was often injuried, little men that play big is a risky proposition. Admire it, but Drouin to me is the safer and better pick.

Disclaimer-I reserve the right to amend my picks if performances warrant it at anytime before the draft.
