He's consistently putting himself in the 'trolley tracks' for big hits. Has been doing so since I've ever seen him.

He can make plays, he can pass, im not suggesting he is a bad player I just think he has a bit of tunnel vision and his speed puts him in more danger than what I've seen out of Mackinnon.
Yeah, that's true but without skating like a bull, Hall wouldn't generate the power in his strides that he currently has. There's a price to pay for that but it's an immense asset that not only helps him beat defenders but it also opens a lot of ice for teammates. He's already becoming more aware and leaving himself less vulnerable to get nailed, so I'm not worried about it much.

Mac doesn't have the power of Hall but he's got more slickness at high speed. Either way, both styles have their advantages and disadvantages.
