Really isn't a factor to me, and Seth Jones is also in that boat being a 94 and that obviously hasn't affected his stock. On the flip side, I can see where people go crazy over MacKinnon, being a late 95 and literally one of the youngest players in the draft.
I think it is a factor and something that is considered. How much weight do you put on it really depends on the scout. But, I don't think it is a major knock (a minor one though).
