I agree. I do think MacKinnon has a slight edge in a few respects. I like his balance better, and his defensive game is ahead of where Hall's was at the same time, not that I would put much weight on the latter anyway. I do think he is a smarter player than Hall overall, while he does not play quite as physical a game (although it's still excellent for this type of talent).
I have high hopes for MacKinnon. If he ends up at the same level as Hall, then the team that drafts him will be ecstatic. As much as I am loving the Galchenyuk pick for Montreal, I think MacKinnon is a true game breaking forward that would work perfectly for Montreal in a 1-2 punch scenario down the middle. Of course, this is assuming Montreal somehow gets in a position to take him.
