It's really only part of it.

Are you suggesting he's on par with the Daigle, Crosby or Lecavalier drafts? If that were the case, there would be no doubt who the #1 pick would be.

For the World Juniors, you look at players who have dominant moments. Drouin had those moments, as did Jones. Mackinnon did not. Like I said, there's so many other factors also. His linemates, The Q, etc. Im not saying he wont end up being a great NHL player. There are questions though and teams dont mortgage their farm in that situation.
