From my knowledge, I don't think the Isles have anyone in this game. I guess we'll get a good look at Strome when the Russians play the OHL and Reinhart when they play the WHL.
Mackinnon reminds me of mike bossy. Not just the jersey number, but his ability to hover around the slot, the amazing release and quick hands...better skater and bit more physical than bossy.
This is not to suggest he will be as good as bossy, please don't misinterpret....but certainly a top tier talent who stands out. Yakupov looks real good too.
