What's that old saying? "Be careful for what you wish for"

Let's say we do a massive tank, draft McKinnon. Who is to say the kid wouldn't crumble under all of the pressure playing in Toronto? Why couldn't he turn into another Alexandre Daigle or Patrik Stefan?

The point I am trying to make is that even a top 5 pick does not guarantee that we will get that elite player that we want. Also, given the Leafs 1st round draft history, I don't know if I would want to put too much faith in the Leafs picking the next franchise player through the draft.
