They almost sound identical except the difference in skating(definitely in Mac's favor), physicality(in Lindholm's favor) and age(Mac is about 9 months younger).
MacKinnon has been hyped for years, has gotten way more exposure. That being said, I'd take Mac over Lindholm 10 times out of 10. Doesn't mean that Lindholm isn't a fantastic talent.
You never know how things shake out though - look at the 2006 draft...
TSN Rankings Pre-Draft:
They ended up going:
Same deal as with this draft with a #1 consensus D, 3 two-way C's (Lindholm/Mackinnon/Barkov vs. Toews/Staal/Backstrom) and a dynamic winger (Drouin vs. Kessel).
