Yep, the Avs need a high end d-man pretty badly but they believed MacKinnon was the BPA, same goes for why TB took Drouin and Florida took Barkov, both orgs believed they were taking the BPA.
I don't think Orgs put a whole lot of value on winning a Memorial Cup in a players draft year (17/18 yo) and I highly doubt that was the main reason why the Sharks didn't take Weber, his play in his draft year was a pretty big factor.
