It's hard to see us being a team with a top 6 looking like this in terms of cap hit in a few years:

6-6-6
6-5-6

So anyways, I think we would be better off either trading down, trading for an established top defenceman, or maybe reaching a bit and picking Barkov like you said.
If we draft Mackinnon or Barkov Gagner is going to go for sure. We would have them on ELC for 3 years, I'm okay with having that kind of problem later on anyways. You give it time and you trade the one who has performed the least once that ELC is up. If it's Eberle, so be it. Unless he really bombed out over the next 3 years, he would fetch a great return of young assets/draft picks.
