Aside from that, he is a legitimate #1 pick and that's not even a knock on Monahan.
The only knock on MacK so far his probably his FO ability; but that'll come with time I'm certain.

MacK is also playing more meaningful time for the Avs than Monahan is; I think he's averaging like 4 more minutes a game lol. Actually I think in the top 30 rookie scoring (still mega early, so take with a grain of salt) Sven and Sean are playing ridiculously low and sheltered minutes.
