Since it is so close I think we take Mackinnon as he brings things that the organization is completely lacking, he's extremely fast and his skating is elite, one of the best shots in the draft, and he's already developing a toews/crosby like ability to play well defensively and turn that defensive play into offensive opportunity.

Jones is an awesome talent as is Mac. Mac just fills a lot more holes in our organization.
