I think you could make a case that Drouin has the most offensive talent in the draft. If the Stars had the number 2 pick somehow and Jones went first it would be one hell of a tough pick for me. Hell I'm not even really sold that Jones should go number one.

Looking at Mackinnon I see a guy who is incredibly talented but every scouting report I read praises the guys drive. If you look at a guy like Sidney Crosby I think his drive is what takes him to the level he is at. Yeah he is as skills and smart as anyone and would probably be the best player in the league either way, but his drive puts him a notch above everyone else in my eyes.
