I don't see MacKinnon or Jones as a generational talent, and if anything the top 3 this year kind of resembles the top 3 in 2009.
The 2003 draft was strong because it was so deep. The 2005 draft wasn't strong, but it did have an extremely good 1st overall pick.
The 2013 draft is not only considered to be very deep(Not 03 deep, but better then that last few years) but also still has a strong top end in Mackinnon/Jones.
