As good as Barkov is, MacKinnon has shown more ability to take the game by the scruff of it's neck and enforce himself on the game.
It's not much of a critique of Barkov, but an example of a contrast in playing styles as MacKinnon generally shows a more aggressive playing style using his skill and skating to create offense, while Barkov in general consistently makes smart decisions using his teammates to create offense rather than relying on individual skill.
So MacKinnons playing style is better than Barkovs? And aggressive playing style for forwards is by default better than any other style?
And Barkov too has scored many goals on which he relied on his own skill alone, naturally that is harder in a mens league than in a junior league.
