Weiss was not the greatest skater when he was drafted, while Mackinnon can step in and be one of the best skaters in the NHL ala Howden. Weiss is also more of a perimeter playmaker, while Mackinnon is more like a David Backes drive the net and crash it. They both had elite vision coming out of juniors it took Weiss a little longer to develop his game as he wasn't NHL ready while Mac is probably a lot closer to a finished product.
