Jones, even though the Leafs would have a ridiculous prospect pool from a defensive standpoint.

Drouin is great and I'm not in the camp that thinks he's just riding on Mackinnon's coattails, but Jones is clearly the better prospect IMO. Drouin will probably be drafted like 4th-10th.

Drouin is great but I see him as a step below both Jones and Mackinnon. Not buying into his hype.

Love Drouin, and Jones doesn't fill a need, but you have to go with Jones.

Drouin is amazing.

IMO third best in the draft.

Behind Nate and Jones.

I'd take Jones, would be a sick pairing with Hamilton in the future

Jones. Drouin is an offensive machine, but a guy like Jones can dominate the whole ice.

This. I consider Drouin the best player in the draft from a purely offensive standpoint, but he will never make a difference defensively; in fact he's somewhat poor in his own zone* (he has a tendency to cheat)

Jones is IMO the best player in the draft. Just skyhigh potential in all areas, an absolutely dominant defender when he's on his game. He can score, hit, defend, skate, everything.

*I know he plays the PK. Lots of junior teams just put their best players on the PK. He is an extreme longshot to play an NHL PK

I love Drouin, but it would be a mistake to pass up Jones. Even as a Leaf Fan it would be difficult to pass up on Jones. MacKinnon still goes #1 for me though.
