Does anyone still think the Avs made an error picking him instead of Seth Jones? I didn't think they did before they picked him, and I definitely don't think they did after seeing him play. Guy is going to be easily the best player from that draft.
It's tough to say. He was the best offensive prospect and Jones was the best defensive prospect. I think both will go on to have phenomenal careers so that you can't possibly make the claim that picking MacKinnon over Jones was a mistake even if Seth absolutely explodes into a habitual Norris contender, but I do think that the Panthers and Bolts might regret letting him slide to #4, not to knock their guys.
