Even if he did refuse to report I think I'd still make the pick and trade him when I absolutely have no other choice. My hunch is that a 20 year old NHL-ready MacKinnon is more valuable than an 18 year old version.

But if you do have to trade the pick I'd expect that you'd have to have at least 5-6 majour assets on the table in order for it to work. I don't know if the Islanders would have those kinds of players around. Maybe 2 first round picks, 2 top prospects and a couple of roster players?
I thought MacKinnon was a potential franchise player.

I hadn't realized he was a generational talent, like Crosby.
