Any chance we send MacKinnon to the WJC?

MacKinnon will be fine and there's no way he's going to WJC, IMO.
Not that I'm worried about Nate's start, but Duchene had way more dangerous scoring chances than Nate has had. He was just snakebit. MacKinnon had a very good first couple games, but hasn't quite looked as comfortable since. He's made some good plays, but also benefited assist wise from his linemates finding the back of the net. Duchene had a better start IMO even if the points don't tell that story.
