I can't formulate a valid opinion because I've only viewed Jones once or twice. My post was only to inform you that judging MacKinnon as a 17 year old, 13th forward, at the world juniors is hardly a fair representation of MacKinnon.

The kid plays big, drives to the net, isn't afraid of the corners/boards, and can throw a big hit when he needs to. Saying he plays small is uninformed and just plain wrong.

Even in the WJC semi final, the only time Canada really looked good was in the 3rd period when they put MacKinnon between Huberdeau and Drouin.
