And MacKinnon or Barkov would be awesome. Even if we finished as the worst team in the league, I would not draft Seth Jones. I would trade down a slot or two with the Flames / Avs / Pants. We absolutely have to draft a premier forward; who knows when we will get a top pick again. This franchise is made to finish #5-10 in its conference every year.
Poor Legwand gets such a bad rap. He's a very good skater, and at times, shows flair to be an excellent puck handler. I just don't think he's ever had much of a killer instinct for the offensive end.
