I know he has often said that he loves offense, but he's also said that he loves smooth skating defensemen who can get the puck out of trouble. I think it will come down to who they think is the BPA, and most people think that's Jones. Santos' ballad to Jones during the intermission didn't make me doubt that any more. One can make the argument that the Panthers would use misdirection in regards to who they have at #1, but it is just a game intermission interview.

I really don't think they want Drouin, he's the farthest away from making an impact IMO and he's small, they need more big players with speed on the team.
