OEL has passed the #2 pick in Hedman in most peoples eyes. Hedman was extremly hyped.

When their has been a foward vs defenceman in the running for first overall when has the defenceman gone on be a better player than the forward? All I can think of is Pronger off the top of my head.

I like Seth Jones and would love to draft him high, but I am not sold on him being the best defenceman like I am with MacKinnon.
