The org harping on development is because some players just aren't elite and for them to be difference makers in the NHL, they need time to work on deficiencies. MacKinnon is an elite player and will most likely be in the NHL next yr, regardless of what team selects him.
Like i said a couple of replies ago... I mixed up SA and their respective CHL teams.... I meant they played with their CHL teams for a 1yr, they did not start with the Panthers right after getting drafted
