Jones, MacKinnon or Drouin?

I voted other because I don't think we'll be that bad come end of the season. We've been as good as 3rd, and as bad as 14th. Much like a stock, we will probably end up somewhere in between our high and low.
I don't think we'll be there for Jones or MacKinnon, and what I have seen of Drouin is an ability to have some impressive dangles and solid puckhandling skills. He's skates well and has speed. However, I don't see much in the way anything else.
For me, I like Elias Lindholm. If you saw any of his play at the WJC, he skates well, he backchecks, he forechecks, he hits, he dangles, he gets in front of the net, he passes, he can score. We have scorers on this team. We could use a center (if we take a center) that combines physical play with effort on both sides of the puck, and causes traffic in front.
