Jaskin has had a very impressive season thus far and I expect it to continue. Comparing him to Nathan MacKinnon though? Seriously? MacKinnon is 2 years younger than Jaskin (2 1/2 yrs actually but 2 development years) and that difference is significant.
C'mon that was more of an observation than a comparison. But even still, Do you think MacKinnon plays like a 17 yr old kid? It seems to me you are a little too hung up on age. Look I don't think anyone is overhyping Jaskin. Noone expects him to make the Blues next season, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't give credit where it's due. Truth is, outside of our prospects...there really isn't much else to be excited about right now.
