Canada is very deep in terms of 19 year olds at center and in terms of RH shots this year. Not a lot of room for a younger MacKinnon to play an offensive role at either C or RW, it's just a number's game.

Not nearly as deep on the LW though, which is why Drouin has rocketed up the depth chart.
Drouin's hockey sense and vision also gives him an edge against stronger competition. MacKinnon is more of a guy that relies on individual skills(speed, shot, 1 on 1 skills like Gaborik).
