Mac will be a very good player in the NHL. There is no doubt about that. Some people question his hockey IQ and usefulness without the puck. I don't really see it, but I admit I am higher on him than most. The top 3 in this draft would have all been the #1 picks for at least the last 2 years... hell, Jones being a year underage would have been the #1 pick last year if he could have been drafted. The top 3 are pretty much interchangeable IMO. We need defense and there is an organization connection to Jones, no brainer pick. Beyond that flip a coin for Drouin and Mac, both will be great players in their own rights.

When we get past the top 3, you have Barkov, Lindholm, Nichushkin (who will drop like a rock), and Monahan in the next group who should all be really good NHL players.
