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.)
