Not saying he's the surefire #1 overall pick, but considering his role on Team CAN, of course one is going to be underwhelmed by his point totals when his line isn't supposed to really be an offensive line at all (and he's not being used as a center!).

As in the SSS, if MacKinnon were centering Drouin and Huberdeau, watch out.
The fact of the matter is Mckinon is playing in a year with at least 2-3 top 6 NHLers on the team. Of course he's going to have a harder time.
