I've seen MacKinnon play quite a few times this year. His two worst games I've watched were both televised - the Drummondville game last month and the Super Series game last night. But even his worst games don't give me pause to mention him alongside the likes of Tavares and Stamkos. He's worthy of their company IMO.
No way from me. Not yet at least. I don't see that special hockey sense those other two have. I'm not sold on him even going 1st overall this year. From what I've seen, he'll be a dynamic goal scorer, but I can't say that I see him as an elite franchise conerstone. He's got a lot of time to prove me wrong though..

Connor Mcdavid is a SPECIAL player, Mack has nothing on him IMO.
