And Mackinnon will make the jump straight to the NHL, barring any injury, Shinkaruk, not so sure.
Not to mention that Mackinnon completly carried the moose with Drouin and Fucale in the playoffs.
Shinkaruk had average playoffs, after a terrific year.
And he's one of the oldest guy in the draft, being a late birthday, Mackinnon is one of the youngest.
Mackinnon will destroy the 'Q next year.
Another important point to add with Shinkaruk is that he had a prolific scorer with him in Etem.
Were his stats inflated by him? It will be interesting to see how he fares without Etem next year.
Oh and one last point, Mackinnon is bigger physically(in weight) than Shinkaruk and plays more of a power game.
In all do respect, I believe you build from the back end out, thus the big stud D-man would be the obvious choice.
Pronger vs Stamkos, I'll take Pronger every time.
