To me it's not as much MacKinnon falling like Couturier and Grigs as much as it is other very elite talents rising in a draft where it's crowed at the top.
True and I don't believe he will fall as far as those two, but both Grigs and Couturier were seen as head and shoulders above the #3 skater. Both were in 1A / 1B discussions. Both fell out of the top 5.
