His two-way game is quite a bit better than Hall's come draft time as well, having proven himself to be a reliable PKer as one of the team's youngest players. Finally, while I could see the argument for Hall being a bit faster straight ahead, I prefer MacKinnon's skating balance and turning.
Keep in mind that Hall almost a full year older than MacK when they got draft. Hall was born on November 14th, while MacK is born on September 2nd.
