Seth Jones was a great pick as the fourth player taken. He was not a great pick for the Nashville Predators if the desired goal was to move away from "too much of the same type of player".
I agree, the problem is when Chicago was drafting Toews, Kane or Pittsburg' drafting Malkin, Florida was drafting the the top 10 of those drafts as well.

You could be correct with Colorado, but this is their 3rd top 5 pick in the last 5 years.
