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.
Well MacKinnon should have an easier time taking over a game since he's playing in a junior league as opposed to a mens league.
