It's interesting how every team has different needs and all the top 5 could be shifted in some way to fill them. I think it's safe to assume Jones goes #1 and Mac #2, but after that it gets interesting. Preds fans have now convinced themselves Barkov is who they need since he's a natural C, but Drouin is rated as a higher octane forward with more potential.
Not so sure if a draft and trade scenario would work then, since there are just too many variables. Basically, Tampa needs to walk out of this draft with one of Drouin or Nichushkin.
