Poll for # 1 (2013 draft)

Since I saw few list put Drouin over Mackinnon and Jones, I think it would be interesting to know what's the opinion of Hf members. Your vote is not about who you think is gonna be #1, but it's about who would you choose if you have the first pick.

Jones but I'd second guess myself to death for not taking Drouin.

Mackinnnon for me. But I'd rather be #2 or even #3 and not make a choice

VERY tempted to take Jones, but I think I would still take MacKinnon. I am from Halifax though so my vote might not be valid.

Jones
Drouin
MacKinnon
Lindholm
Barkov

Can't go wrong with any of them but that's how I have them ranked right now but things could change

Depends on the team that is 1st if you ask me. If Edmonton gets 1st then I reckon they'd got a D man in either Jones or Drouin. If Columbus gets 1st I reckon they'll go for MacKinnon.

I've gone for Drouin because I believe a team that needs D will get 1st.

MacKinnon. The idea of taking D that high, even one with as good a pedigree as Jones, is straight-up scary to me. Draft history would tell you that you're better off taking a forward there and hoping to strike gold a bit later in the draft on D. So Mac/Drouin. Jones. Barkov/Monahan/Lindholm.

I reckon that Drouin is not a D...

I would draft Drouin > MacKinnon > Jones > Barkov. No real knock against Jones just can't pick a Dman ahead of that kind of offensive ability. In terms of Drouin ahead of MacKinnon it could easily go either way.

Every video I've seen of him has been him coming from coast to coast, I just assumed he was a natural D but as Forward he would be quite something.

If he played forward he could probably have 93 points in 42 games at this point!

so you've never seen him play a game your just going off of highlights?

I'm going Mack the combination of his Skating, Skill, Size & Strength and Tenacity gives him the nod.
