I love the draft but TSN is taking it too far. They've gone the way of TMZ with dudes stationed at teams draft tables and they had a guy stalking Vinny Lecavalier trying to figure out where he was going to sign. Shame on you TSN, your better than this garbage.

Totally agree. I'm not sold on Mackinnon yet either.

No idea. Tampa better take him, he's a massive steal at 3 but I think they go with Drouin.

Don't get why Jones has dropped this far. Its not like he's a one dimensional D-man the guys got an offensive game. Would love to see the Oilers trade up and nab him, but I doubt Mac-T's smart enough to do that.

Jones at 4 is a steal for the Preds. Preds blueline is going to be outstanding for a lot of years.

Damn really wanted Lindholm to drop to 7. Good pick for the Canes though.

Jones is the steal of the draft. Getting a Pronger-esk prospect at #4...Amazing

I'm no expert but my feeling is Mackinnon ends up worst of him, Jones, Drouin, Barkov. From what I read Mackinnon has the generational speed but Drouin, Barkov, Jones have a more natural hockey sense/vision/etc. in addition to their skills. I'd take the head over the skates in hockey. Drouin to me just seems like he's the best player pound for pound almost across the board, even if he's less physically gifted than the rest, I wouldn't bet against that

I really like Drouin too. He's just such a well rounded and smooth player, him and Stamkos are going to be a dangerous duo, very very dangerous.
