Denver should pick who they think will be the best player, and if they think that's going to be MacKinnon, I don't think anybody can disagree with it.

That and the last few Dmen that have went near the top haven't really turned into their hype (Gudbranson, Hedmen, E. Johnson, etc) so maybe they don't want to take that risk.
MacKinnon was also invisible in the WJC whereas Jones shined. I think that at least cancels out the Memorial Cup. Jones projects way better than a guy like Gudbranson. I think you're underrating Hedman. Johnson is also very good defensively but hasn't been the same offensively since he lost an entire year of development with a torn ACL and MCL (which is a brutal injury especially for such a young player).
