What if the Nashville Predators had the 2nd overall pick

If the Nashville Predators somehow got the 2nd overall pick in the 2013 NHL entry draft from the Florida Panthers, who should they draft?This "what if" isn't about the 1st overall pick, because the Colorado Avalanche made it clear that they were going to keep the pick and draft Nathan MacKinnon days before the draft.

The options in the poll are:

Alexander Barkov
Jonathan Drouin
Seth Jones

You can post and choose any player in the draft. I only included the players drafted 2nd-4th overall in the poll for convenience.

Poile had stated that Jones was the highest rated player on their board. Our pick wouldn't have changed.

I'm asking who the fans would've drafted.

Almost all of us will say Barkov. I wouldn't have wanted to see what would have become of this boardhad poile traded up to #2 and the drafted Jones.

Edit: now that we have jones, if he wins this poll, there are some lying sonsaguns on here

Once Poile said he had Jones at #1 overall on his board, that meant they were taking Jones if at all possible. If that's who they had ranked first overall, that's who they should have taken at second. I assume they have better scouts than I have (since I have none).

Jones was BPA whether at #4 or #2, so that should have been the pick.

We should have traded down to #4, since all three of those players are dead even IMO, but if we did pick there, I'll take Drouin. Poile would still have taken Jones.

I just hate the idea of taking a Dman early in general.

Drouin

I'm not so sure Drouin won't be the best scorer of the big 3 forwards.

Barkov, but I'm completely happy with Jones.

Drouin, can never go wrong with a guy who can find the back of the net.

Barkov. That way we could complete our club's transformation into "Nordic Nashville".

I jest, but still Barkov

What if I had a Ferrari and millions of dollars in the bank? Just as plausible of a topic.

Jones was our BPA, and if Colorado hadn't taken him, we'd have taken him.

Ask me in about 10-15 years whether or not that was a good idea.
