absolutely, this is great news. There is now a legit top 7

Jones, McKinnon, Druin, Barkov, Nichushkin, Lindholm, Monahan.

All of these guys are legit top 5 picks in a good draft year so having the 7th pick may not be any worse than having the 4th pick in a normal year. The trade value has gone up a lot. IMO, MacT is swapping this pick for a defenceman and this news greatly increases the value of his trading chip.
