I don't believe so simply because it is his first season in the Q so there will be obvious adjustment time, whereas MacKinnon has already played a year in the league and went deep into the playoffs. It depends on who he is playing with of course, I'm not sure I would consider him a better prospect than Grigorenko was last year so if he gets around the same numbers as Grigo did last year his season would be considered successful.

Otherwise this is yet another in a series of sensational hfboards posts that follow the same old reductive formula. Skill + Size = OMFG
That's not necessarily true in this case since I am not talking about two prospects but rather one. If retaining the same skills a 6'3 Barbashev would certainly be more sought after than a 5'11 Barbashev. As much as it may not be a big factor to some people here, to scouts size matters. A 6 feet Rocco Grimaldi easily goes top 5 at least rather than second round. Same applies to many other smaller players.
