If RoR re-signs or we trade him for forwards, then I would draft Zadorov. I think this guy could make the team right out of camp next year from what I read on him. Obviously you start him on the 3rd pair to give him a chance to get used to the NHL speed but then you move him up slowly with EJ.
Top 3 should always be best player available. After that draft for need. If we get the number 2 pick, and Jones goes first, we need to get Mackinnon even though we may be deep down the middle.
