As for MacKinnon, he as much a powerful skater as Nichushkin but he is unpredictable in his style and decision making. Outside of the size difference, even if Nichushkin was to be a NA, I would still say that he's behind MacKinnon.
MacKinnon tends to get real predictable and stop using his teammates when things don't go his way. Playmaking doesn't come natural to him.
