I agree that Florida would pick Mackinnon 1st considering they have a few good young defensemen in Kulikov and Gudbranson and a good young winger in Huberdeau. Colorado would most likely go for Jones. Calgary would be harder to predict. Flyers would likely do whatever possible to get the 1st or 2nd pick to grab Jones, but if they ended up picking at 4 in this scenario and jones was off the board i think they'd go BPA or trade the pick for multiple 1sts and grab a defenseman and a winger. other notes:
i don't think Nurse falls to #9.
i don't think Frederik Gauthier goes that high.
i don't think the Coyotes take defenseman.
i don't think Meuller goes that high.

the rest looks pretty plausible though.
I agree with you concerning the Flyers at four and it would not surprise me to see them select Nurse.
