im only going to roll my eyes here...people are saying Lazar is not as good as Nathan Mackinnon...I compare Nathan to Steven Stamkos and Lazar is a more offensive Kesler.....
Not only do i love Lazar I think he is one of the best prospects in all of hockey....BUT that being said, when you have a world junior coach who was there watching the games who i know say Nathan is a special player that only comes around so often....guess you have to really know the game to understand why....
points of interest...i would admit if Lazar was better I am not biased to Nathan because to me a good prospect is a good prospect but here are some points to look at:
1. Nathan Mackinnon was playing on a team with NO linemates who could even compare to Petan, Reinhart.
2. Nathan had to do every thing himself, in a regular game Nathan is not the hog he was in the games, he is a fantastic playmaker.
3. When a team can triple team you and not worry about the rest of the players than it makes it hard for you to really do anything and yet Nathan was top of the scoring even still.
I was there too see, Nathan wows you every time he has the puck, he creates so much on the ice it is sick...Lazar is more safe on offense he moves well without the puck and takes advantage of open ice, but he had guys like Petan or Reinhart that the other team had to worry about and it opened up ice for him, nathan had to create everything, but im not going to defend my take any more here, Nathan is the more special player than lazar my take, lazar is amazing but Nathan is special, time will show you guys, look what Mackinnon did in the U17s with decent linemates case closed, im done defending my take on it.
