I'd prefer Nurse over Lindholm or Monahan, but if we end up 4th (unlikely) and Barkov is on the board, I think you have to take him. (Mackinnon and Drouin are no-brainers, I think).
If I disagree with any of that it would be only mildly... But I was referring specifically to the possibility that we would end up with the #1 pick and thus the question of do you take Jones or MacKinnon (or for that matter Drouin). I'm sure there would be a little voice in Homer's head that say "take the center, take the center!" but hopefully he would resist. Unlikely scenario in any case.
