Roy said in a recent presser that he felt there was no need to take a defenseman high and wanted them to take a defensemen in the second round. Then he went on to name all the good defensemen taken in the second round. Plus another article from the Montreal media stated that Roy said the scouts eliminated Jones so they focused on the forwards. They were higher on Barkov than Drouin, that was stated in the article as well that they eventually were down to MacKinnon and Barkov. So I just don't think they were ever really looking at Jones and at least in part they preferred to select a forward.

I've seen McKeown pretty consistently lower in the rankings lately, 20 or lower. so it's possible that he's available. Though they might look at a forward this time around.
