I'm not sure if anyone in this thread has mentioned this, but MacKinnon will probably end up playing for the Oilers...

In all seriousness, probably not. Crosby and Ovechkin were the de facto #1A and #1B best players in the NHL and were counted on to be the faces of the NHL. Neither Yakopov nor MacKinnon will be the two best players in the NHL and I doubt the NHL will attempt to manufacture a rivalry between the two. Also, there's a chance they'll play in different conferences and only meet once or twice a year.
