Florida pretty much can't go wrong with their pick as long as they don't trade it away. I want them to pick Jones though. Jones is going to be the best D in the NHL in a couple years. His skating is fantastic (skates like Legwand), his awareness and IQ is astounding, he has good playmaking skills, he plays a physical game, an excellent shutdown defender who has a BIG offensive upside. He's leaps and bounds ahead of the other players in the draft, as good as Mackinnon and Drouin are he's MUCH better than them both amazingly enough. Guy has the potential to be the next Lidstrom.

Now if you don't pick him, I go for Drouin for sure. Drouin-Huberdeau could be the next Stamkos-St. Louis. Drouin is very similar to St. Louis and I wouldn't be surprised if he puts up the same kind of numbers.

From there you can take anyone in the top 10 and still end up with a top 6 forward probably lol. Still tbose are my best guys. Jones is BPA for miles and miles and even if Florida do want someone to compliment Huberdeau, I think they should take him. And speaking of complimenting him, Drouin compliments him the most. (:

(and Barkov > Mackinnon for the Panthers imo)
imo you're crazy

Have you seen them play per chance? I'm a big OHL guy so I watch a lot of their games.

Per sportsclubstats.com, even if we go 2-2 in our last 4, we still have a 95% chance of finishing 30th.

Hattrick Nathan MacKinnon!

If we pass on him, we are stupid.

If we lose tonight and the Hurricanes are able to get a win against the Lightning we have secured a bottom 2 finish!!!

I dont think Rouyn Nouranda is one of these teams. They were the first team to really hang with the Mooseheads but they still lost.

MacKinnon has one of the best first steps (acceleration) I've seen. His skating is crazy good.

Hopefully Tallon noticed that his the type of player we need. That second goal was nice.

DT takes whoever he feels is BPA, isn't always what the scouts pick

last games interview with assistant GM talked a lot about Jones, a little about MacK and ignored drouin, thats all we got atm

Looking at your statistics your team screams Jones but I don't know the management psychology of the cats. Most Preds fans hope you take Jones #1 to prevent David Poile from taking him. LOL.

I would be disappointed if we took Jones with Mac still on the board as I know most on here would be. We have a chance at drafting a true #1 center which is something we have been lacking for over a decade. Yeah, Jones would still be a great addition and make our team better, but most on here think we would improve our team more by taking Mac!

Florida Panthers GM weighs in on talents of Nathan MacKinnon, Jonathan Drouin

Pretty sure we all missed this !

Can't see Tallon not being on the Mooseheads' bandwagon ! Seth Jones can't be his guy !

Several people have said that MacKinnon reminds them of a combination of Seguin & Hall (obviously Hall's speed & goal scoring with Seguin's all around game & physical play). I love that comparison and why I want him over Drouin or Jones. Can't go wrong with any of the 3, but personally I would love to have a guy like that in our organization.

This team is outtanking everyone. Lost their 6th straight games today..

This eliminates Nashville and Tampa Bay which means we have already

secured a Top4 pick.

Pending a Hurricanes win it might be a Top 3 pick!

Such a good year to tank, the boys really did it well too, not pulling a Calgary for example.

I didnt know that Jones is Popeye Jones' son, interesting. I like what Luce had to say about him, but seeing how Tallon was at the Mooseheads games this past weekend, it seems that he might favor one of their talented forwards *cough* Mac *cough*
