    Default Tarasenko or Drouin/MacKinnon?

    If you could have one of the three, who do you choose?

    Stats for my league are in my signature. I currenlty own Tarasenko but a team with the 2nd overall pick is heavily interested in Tarasenko. I believe I'd be able to get his first rounder for Tarasenko.

    Do you keep Tarasenko, as he's got three years of development now?

    Or do you make the deal and take Drouin or MacKinnon?

    I've had conversations with the guy who holds the 1st overall pick, and I'm fairly certain he will take Jones, or perhaps Drouin.

    But if he takes Drouin, who do you choose between Jones and MacKinnon? Or between Jones and Drouin if he takes MacKinnon?

    Well this is tricky, here's how I would venture:

    1. Drouin - Filthy mitts and best hands in the draft. Will lineup next to Huberdeau or Stamkos in the near future. Insane fantasy upside IMO.

    2. MacKinnon - Awesome all-around skills with high-end offensive upside. Might play 2nd fiddle to Stamkos in Tampa but will still get his.

    3. Tarasenko - 35g/45a potential but Blues spread it out among their top 9 and Tarasenko has received a couple of concussions already, plays and gritty game and doesn't hide from the dirty areas.

    I'd take Drouin/Mac over Tarasenko, but probably not Jones.

    Love this ranking, couldn't agree more.

    Nice job, FC!

    I definitely make this trade. Tarasenko is a nice player but we're talking about cream of the crop picks here. No way I'd take Jones over either Drouin or Nate Mac.

    One concussion for Tarasenko. Though, after the hit, he was never the same - way less grit and NO dirty areas... If he can regain his pre-concussion form and build on his 2-way game, the minutes will one day come - even in St. Louis. As mentioned, he's still not in the same class as the other two players (for fantasy purposes).

    Yeah, he's been hit hard a couple of times, but this winter in the KHL, they ruled out concussion and he only sat out one game as a precaution. Official word from the Blues was the concussion suffered in the NHL this season was first of his career. Who knows about the true history of concussions with any player... and does it really even matter.

    I apologize if this may be hijacking the thread, but

    Lets say hypothetically, if Yakupov and Huberdeau were in this upcoming draft as well, how would Droiun and MacKinnon compare with them (ignoring what Yakupov and Huberdeau have done so far)?

    Who cares! They are all going to be elite players. I'd be happy picking 4th and getting whoever is left over.

    Hubs would definitely be at the bottom of the list but that's all I can say for certain. I'd prefer Drouin and Nate Mac over Yak but it's not a slam dunk.
