I was alive and following the draft.

Hedman in particular was the next Chris Pronger. He was going to go before the talked-about-for-5-years John Tavares(a better player than Mackinnon projects, IMO).

Erik Johnson was considered a can't-miss, superstar franchise defenseman--although it's tough to judge him, given that he missed an entire year in the early going.

Seth Jones isn't even the consensus number one, at this point. Throwing out Colorado's words, Bob McKenzie said "of ten scouts I talked to, 8 ranked Mackinnon before Jones."
