Nathan Mackinnon did next to nothing with the time he DID get in the WJC. He also was less than impressive in the prospects game. Jones was very good in both.

One player is trending up, while the other is going the other direction from where I sit.
Chances are you are going to get much faster returns on a Center then a defenseman. Also it's much harder finding top offensive forwards then top defensemen later in the draft(basically 10 years from now Jones might end up being a better player but up until that point you probably are going to get much more out of the Mackinnon pick). When all things are close to equal I am going with a center
