Mackinnon is a Center, and he is not used to getting bottom 6 mins or a role. This is what I was trying to tell a poster that claimed Barkov could easily make Team Canada earlier.

It's not that simplistic, Mackinnon is still a stud of a prospect and he will be a star in the NHL one day. Perhaps an elite star.
Based on this WJC Rielly wouldn't go 5th. or be rated 1st. overall by anyone.

Based on this WJC Jones wouldn't move up the draft either, there'd be too many questions about his IQ on defense. (Derek Pouliot, Jones teammate, is a PPG '94 born defender - just to keep in perspective offensive production on the Winterhawks.)

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
