If Jones ends up going first, then the Flyers shop the hell out of the pick and ask for a first and blue chip prospect defenseman in return. For instance, say if Phoenix moves to Quebec in the off season and they decide they want a player that has appeal to the Quebec fans, I could very easily see Phoenix flipping their first and a player like Gormley to get a chance at drafting either Mackinnon or Drouin. That still leaves the Flyers in a position to draft someone like Rasmus Ristolainen or Ryan Pulock.
It would be pretty hard to pass up Drouin. I like him better than Mackinnon. I think he's going going to be a special player in this league. He would give us that potential 1st line winger. That's just my opinion though.
But I get what you're saying and wouldn't be totally against it if that's how it played out.
