Right now IMO there are 3 teams that are definitely worst than the Flyers: Columbus, Florida, and Edmonton. So the Flyers are could finish with #4 pick. If Columbus gets the 1st overall, and with their new GM being from Finland, they would probably not have interest in Jones due to their defensive depth but could Barkov. The Flyers at that point could probably trade up from 4 together him, but it would cost a core player like Couturier to do so. Is that worth it for Jones? And would the Flyers be better off just taking Barkov or even Nurse at that point? All speculation but interesting.
This draft has a definitely top 4 in Drouin, Makinnon, Barkov, and Jones. I do not see any team trading complete out of one of those spots. Nichushkin could push in there though and make it a set top 5. So to get Jones the Flyers would probably have to draft in the Top 5 picks at the very least to have a shot at trading for Jones IMO.
