Like I said I don't feel his playmaking abilities are strong but offensively he is gifted he is just not a playmaker it's not what RDS is saying its what I am seeing. He has great speed, shot and drives the outside very well.
MaxPac can create plays by himself. So yes, he is a playmaker. He's not a pass first or dangler, but he can still do a good job of setting up his teammates.
By the way, him driving the net to create a rebound which leads to a goal is play making.
I think you have a very narrow view of what a playmaker is. It seems you think a playmaker is only someone that will carry the puck in the offensive zone and then set up a teammate via pass. There's more to it than just that.
