There's no way the Panthers should pass up on Jones if they draft 1st. That's one rare physical specimen.
I'm hesitant to say "draft a defenseman 1st overall" - last time we were set to do that (and traded down and took him 3rd instead), he didn't want to play for us and phoned it in until his rookie deal ran out.

Meanwhile, Huberdeau needs a high-end talent to play with. If we get MacKinnon, and I'm presuming he's a winger, then we could turn Shore into our very own Steve Rucchin with Huberdeau and MacKinnon as our Kariya and Selanne. Nice top line to have if you can get it. Then we have Versteeg, Weiss, and Fleischmann as a rather competent second line.

Of course...that's if anything ever pans out for us.
