Mackinnon is all you'd want in a player and has all the skills you'd want on a elite level. It's why he's so highly touted.
The attitude thing comes from Team Canada coaches who had him at TWO inbternational tournaments.
I never said he had BAD IQ, just slightly above average while Drouin's is the best in the draft from what many scouts are saying.
What I would want from MacKinnon that he currently doesn't have...or I haven't seen in 15-20 viewings is the ability to see the whole ice at a high level, like Crosby did. He will score goals of his own at the pro level but won't turn a 20 goal scorer into a 30 goal scorer, he profiles more as a #2 center or #1 line winger than elite #1 center.
