Regarding the OP, I would probably be inclined to go with Mackinnon or Drouin with the 1st pick. I like the idea of taking a top forward over a D-man, and not just because of organizational need. I think that it is harder to project a D-man's future contribution, though I think that Jones looks like he has great potential.
But I would also consider the idea of trading down with someone who is fixated on Jones or another player at #1, as long as we can stay in the top 4 and get another strong young asset.
