Maybe so... I never understand trading one spot down. Don't you have to say "hey, I'll trade down if you don't pick McK" and they say, "screw that, we want Jones anyway so we will wait". How does that work... do you have to threaten to take their guy? You have to get assurances they don't take your's right?

Anyway, McK seems like more of a Preds kind of player but those "human highlight reels" of Drouin are amazing stuff.
