if we finish with the #4 pick, id do everything i could to trade up to #2 to get mackinnon ... ryan ellis + 4th or 5th overall... this year could be different considering the top players in the draft all seem to be great choices. so say if a team is really high on mackinnon, drouin, and barkov.. getting a guy like ryan ellis could be enticing considering they still get one of their 'guys'
Don't know how excited I would be about trading Ellis and fourth overall just to move up two second overall (two spots?)
I would do Blum maybe or someone like budish, or Watson. But if we trade Ellis, may as well draft jones because we empty our defense prospects like nothing then.
I'd obviously rather/ love to have mackinnon. But is barkov and Ellis > mackinnon?!?!
