Default Sakic says Avs won't draft Jones

Surprised nobody's talking about this. Joe Sakic said the top three forwards are too tough to pass up (MacKinnon, Drouin, Barkov) and that they won't be selecting Seth Jones with the first overall pick.

Looks like Jones will be heading for hobby death in Sunrise!

Your thoughts? I'd take MacKinnon over Jones, but Drouin and Barkov puzzle me. Jones is miles ahead of them.

We'll have to see if Jones falls to 4

I think this is the right move for the avs i think jones is a number 4-5 pick the only thing is the needs of the the teams with the top picks, I dont think mackinon is 100% 1st overall, drouin is a crafty talented winger that would go perfect with duchene, and barkov is a big scorer who has proven himself in a mens leauge...Barkov is my favourite player in the draft

I doubt he'll go # 2 so i think if the Avs don't take him then he will go to Tampa .

Doubt he goes to Tampa either, with Hedman there. They need guys to score because St Louis and Vinny aren't getting younger and have absurd contracts

Do the Avs not want defense? They are going backwards in a hurry.

They have the scoring and plenty in the minors. The issue has been goalie and Defense. Talk is Vinny will get bought out or Ryan malone will be bought out. They have Kilorn, Palat, Connolly , Tyler Johnson , J.T. Brown and a few others but scoring is not the issue. There are a few defensive players as well. But Jones is a Special defensive player that would be a top line defender that can score and play like a Dan Boyle . Yes one of the offensive players would be just as great to get so either pick they make is a good move. I just think Jones would be a smarter pick if still on the board at 3.

Pens are trading Letang and Fleury to the Avs for the #1 pick and extras and taking MacKinnon. Patrick Roy wants Fleury BIG TIME!

Thank god, I'll actually be able to own some of his cards if he's not wearing an avs sweater.
