My preference is:
1) Drouin - No. 1 dynamic scoring winger potential. Less defensive responsibilities for wings in system = quicker development path and better long term payoff

2) MacKinnon - No. 1 skilled center potential.

3) Jones - Can't ignore the guy's talents. Would truly solidify defense for remainder of the decade.

4) Barkov - No. 1 power forward center potential. Already responsible defensively. Great size that he uses at both ends of the rink, skating will improve, fantastic hands.

Overall, as long as we finish 3rd or better, I think we are in good position even if we move back a spot due to the draft lottery.
Is Barkov the one coming off of knee surgery ?
