I think this is quickly becoming the consensus best course, honestly (assuming we can't draft Jones, and don't end up around 6-8 (and draft Nurse).

Draft Barkov, and slot him into the 3C role, and move Couturier for a developing young defenseman with top-pairing upside. A guy like Gormley could be interesting here--PHX has been patient with him, and he's likely ready to play in the NHL next year (in a limited role).

EDIT: That assumes we pick at 4. A similar logic could be used for 2 or 3, but it depends on Laughton coming in and playing 3C.
