I've said it before, but he makes it impossible to not select him to your team. He did it with TC and will do it next year as well.
He may not produce right away but with the way his stock is going (I can't even imagine the playoff hype train that will surround these 2 if they go deep) I would't want to be the one that has to pass him up.
Looking back, how smart was Mooseheads management at the draft when they were able to acquire the #1 pick from BC without giving up the #2 pick to get Drouin. Not to mention Fucale. They at one point had the pick to take Adam Erne as well but traded picks with Quebec to get pieces for the BC trade.
They got the #2 pick from Rouyn-Noranda at the draft (Using their #4 pick, a 3rd rounder, and Simon Desmarais). Then in July they got MacKinnon.
