The pick to get MacKinnon would easily cost us our entire cupboard of prospects including Colborne, Rielly and Gardiner. Is it worth it? Hard to say. Is it an overpayment? With zero pro experience of course it is. Will we do it? I pray to god no.

At the same time, two former 1st rounders from the previous 4 years, who still have upside, and something around the 16th pick, easily moves you up 6 spots, arguably even 9-10 depending on who is available and what the teams needs are.
It's much easier to move from 24 to 15, than it is from 11 to 2.
