Barkov was largely human and MacKinnon didn't get the icetime. Jones.... well let's just say I was never a fan of him to start. Too much "promise", so much of it left wanting.
Jones is a hot mess out there. So raw. Gangly, bobbles the puck constantly, and makes poor choices. Great athleticism though.
Yeah drouin has elevated himself right past Mac in this tourney. The need for a dangerous winger exceesing the need for another capable center. Doing a lot to stand in his own. If you were picking today it would be a tough choice. Would come down to whether you needed a center or not, cuz drouin looks notably more dangerous offensively at this point. To be fair Mac hasn't been able to play as much.
