You'd need better arguments then that.

MacKinnon and RNH were both 17 when they were passed over. Seguin was in the NHL in 11, and again, he was 17 in 2010 I believe.

In order for those guys to play at such a young age, they'd need to get sheltered top-six minutes in order to use the offensive side of their game. Canada has a lot of players that were able to take their place, some of which were an entire year or two older and stronger. They wouldn't be doing any good in the bottom six at such a young age, the only good is their offensive ability.
