Why do people keep saying this? He's a natural center, they switched Drouin to Wing when they wanted to play them together (Drouin was a C coming into the q). They even tried to switch Mackinnon to wing for the WJC and he didn't adjust well at all. He has the speed and two way game to play C, and for had 4 assists tonight, he can play setup man as well. Even to those in the BPA crowd, i still think Mackinnon is it. Drouin will likely be a bit of a better scorer, but Mackinnon's all around game i think will make him more valuable. Watch Taylor Hall play, kid wears his heart on his sleeve whenever he steps on the ice, always going at 100%, and Mackinnon does just the same.
