If We Have Both Top Picks Who Do We Draft?

Roy said the other day that Colorado may trade the Top Pick. Personally I think the Av's really want Jones but are using this as a smokescreen to get us to trade them the second pick and a player, prospect or perhaps the top pick in the second round to insure us getting MacKinnon while they still get Jones. But playing along and taking the bait that they would lose the chance to draft Jones and we could get the Top Pick in trade while retaining our 1st Rounder, who would you draft, MacKinnon-Jones or MacKinnon-Drouin? Keep in mind I think Colorado would demand a top defenseman plus to trade the pick and lose Jones so likely Gudbranson or Kulikov would likely have to go along with other assets.

As tempting it is to have a potential line of Huberdeau MacKinnon Drouin; I doubt it would be enough in the long term to win a championship. I think with MacKinnon + Jones, the idea of us winning a championship is more realistic.

MacKinnon and Jones, that would be ridiculous. We could potentially have a top 10 goalie, defenseman, and forward. Not gonna happen though.

I think Colorado will draft Jones after not being satisfied with the returns after shopping the pick around. I don't see them giving in to the MacKinnon / Memorial Cup performance hype. They have too many great hockey minds in that office too pass up a d-man like Seth Jones.

Yeah, you gotta go MacKinnon and Jones. But no chance that happens though.

I assume we'd have to trade at least Kulikov or Gudbranson out of that group, probably Bjugstad too, but we'd still have Matheson. It would be incredible, but like I said I cant fathom why Colorado would want to make this trade.

Like I said, I think Colorado wants to scare us out of our pick and still get Jones with it plus whatever they can get out of us.

I think Tallon still would rather have Jones.

If we had the #1 pick, I'd be surprised if Tallon picked MacKinnon.
