Even so the smart path would be to trade Grigs for MacKinnon as it is ridiculous value. Having a franchise player in your pocket can free you up to spend picks heavily biased towards prospects with Girgs-type qualities hoping you land a few to build your team with. I say that with Girgs being my favorite prospect. We landed Compher in the 2nd round in this draft and he has as much chance of being that same vague kind of 2nd/3rd line two-way heart & soul 110% 200 foot guy, albeit as unique players. I put Girgs over Compher of course, but the point stands. In this draft you could've targeted guys like Horvat, Hartman, Lazar, Compher in that vein.

Girgensons, again, is my favorite prospect, but this Coller fella is off the deep end with hyperbole.
