EDIT: I still think Mackinnon's the best player eligible for the 2013 draft, look forward to watching him live tomorrow.
I was also at 95% of the games and the bolded statement is incorrect. Didn't Lazar say that he thought MacKinnon was by far the best player he's seen and laughed at the fact that at times they would triple team him?

With such massive differences among teammates you have to put into perspective how well Lazar and MacKinnon played. MacKinnon had to be a one man show out their at a lot of the times he was. Lazar (Who don't get me wrong had an amazing tournament) had several high quality teammates to generate offense with. I'm still curious to the amount of Lazars points were Powerplay points.
