Didn't Jones kind of get burned by the duo of Drouin & Mackinnon in the Memorial, though?

To me if you have to wait a couple of years for Jones' to bulk up a bit more and for his defense to come around, and Mackinnon can come in and be a legit player in the NHL....you can see why Avs made the selection.

Drouin to TB. Could be a scary duo

Looks like the Predators will have the opportunity to get Seth Jones.

Drouin fits in nicely with the all offense, no defense philosophy of Tampa.

Europeans tend to like Miami. He'll love South Beach.

on the Nashville board, some of them are pissed they might end up with Jones b/c their offense will still suck

True but Jones will supply a lot of offense from the D and they could use a puck-mover to make them more interesting. Plus Jones is their opportunity to get their Suter replacement.

I kinda figured Barkov would go to NSH. Interesting to see if they pick up Jones.

I think Jones goes here at 4. Can't pass him up.

And in non-shocking fashion, the Preds select Seth Jones.

IMO I will be a bit disappointed if Stan sits on the #30 and doesn't pick up another pick in the top-3 rounds.

Still no congrats to the Hawks that I remember.

Jones to the Preds.

The entire Portland team got whupped by Halifax

But I wouldn't change my plans for the 1st overall pick based on one game

I agree with you that Jones might take longer to get to elite level than Mackinnon, but I think in the not-even-that-long run Jones would be better for them.

And now he's going to Nashville. His ceiling just went up even higher IMO now that he'll be with Poile.

Why? He is going to possibly the best place for him and will be in the NHL next year? Nashville is easily the best place for him to learn how to play shutdown defense against NHL players.
