agree completely. I would today still take Barkov or McKinnon over Jones if i had the choice, based off of need and there isn't much seperating them in terms of potential.

I do like to think if we had gotten one of the forwards, how our July 5th would have gone. I don't think we would have seen Hendricks or Nystrom, or maybe even Cullen., and we would have picked up a Dman.

It is fun to think about.

and I think Seth made the point earlier, it is fun to think about how angry we were at Suter leaving, but his departure let Forsberg and Jones in the door.
