At 1.30 in this clip you'll see how he competes for the puck against men being 16 year old at the time. Pure will.

I'm not even talking about heart, there is no need to make this into a good Canadian boy vs Euro debate because I never even implied this. I know Barkov competes hard and does everything for his team, I'm saying MacKinnon is on another level in intensity/drive in regards to creating scoring chances. This is not a criticism of Barkov, since I feel like MacKinnon is on a different level than anyone in this draft in regards to that.
