...okay, fantasy over. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

MacKinnon is really the only guy who fits that bill. All the top forwards have terrific hands and everything, but he's the only guy who has the total package of size, speed, stickhandling, two-way ability and pure scoring touch. If we can't get a top two pick, then we'll pick someone who is going to have "holes" in their game, although with the traits they do possess being spectacular.
