There is nothing concerning to me about Mackinnon. The guy's skating already is in the upper echelon in the world. He's great defensively and really hounds the puck and wins a ton of battles. Shift in and shift out he always gives everything he's got. He gives Parise like effort.
I hate repeating myself, but the games I watched MacKinnon is like Phil Kessel out there. Much more physical and better than Kessel for sure, but the same gametype. With that I did say he would fit the Avs better, but now you gotta draft Drouin at the #2 spot regardless.
