Jones can seriously score.
Or they could trade ROR for an impact defenseman who is proven in the NHL, not pay an overpriced salary for a guy who doesn't want to be there, and draft MacKinnon to replace him for pennies on the dollar.

Drafting for team need isn't the smartest move. Unless you are currently a Cup contender like Boston when they drafted Seguin.
