From what I have heard/ seen of lindros yeah I can see that too, mackinnon doesnt completely dominate with size or physicality the way lindros did as he is only 5'11, but he does lay the body quite frequently. The ironic thing is that mackinnon was small for his age growing up, and would play a league up on top of that, so he was incredibly small. The mackinnon haters used to say he would never make it because he would be too small and didnt play physical enough
Thanks for the Mackinnon insight.

Yeah, he came across like a scaled down version of Eric Lindros to me. Has the quick acceleration, powerful strides, great body positioning and soft hands.
