MacKinnon is an elite skater, shooter, passer, and has elite puck skills.
At the time, the general opinion was that Daigle was the best player to come out of the Q since Mario Lemieux, (Mackinnon-Crosby comparisons). They noted his blazing speed, killer offensive instincts and flashy skill-set as the main reasons he was the consensus #1 pick. I clearly remember that Daigle over Pronger was far less disputed than Mackinnon vs. Jones is.
