Personally I think Mackinnon has pretty damn high upside, and while I wouldn't rule out him at center I agree he's likely to be better off converted to the wing. Personally I wouldn't mind if his stock falls, imagine Mackinnon playing next to Galchenyuk?

I also thought Jones was poor today, he got burned on the goal. He's still a low risk, high reward prospect but I see more Erik Johnson than Pronger so far.
