I still think that our best bet might be to hope that they get the top pick and try to convince them to move back to 3-4. If they grade MacKinnon, Drouin, and Barkov relatively closely, it might be plausible... maybe... sort of...

If they have Jones and MacKinnon as 1A/1B, I think they take MacKinnon. Offense sells tickets, and in a non-traditional hockey market, there's a benefit to having a superstar.

I don't know what they will do, but I'm pretty sure that their fans want MacKinnon over Jones.
