What is with your vendetta against MacKinnon? It's bordering on obsessive at this point.

That doesn't make him fragile.

Plus the Habs are an average sized team. Taking a potential top 5 pick(assuming Drouin MacKinnon Barkov etc) based on size is as ridiculous as it gets. If you can get a star or superstar you take him at any size and build a team around him.

Drouin is actually heavier than Mackinnon by about 5 lbs and they have a half inch to an inch difference in height...again ridiculous. We should base our drafts on the Lightning's 2000-2005 draft philosophy of size first...

Boston won with goaltending more than anything else. A bunch of their best players were average to small in those playoffs...Bergeron Krejci Marchand Recchi.

LA won with strong goaltending, mobile defense and a deep group of forwards. They did have some size up front but also some smaller guys that produced.

I want Canada to win and don't want 4th liners costing games.

Red Line had him #2 behind Jones BEFORE the WJHC so it's not like he is coming out of nowhere. He's been the best player in the Q so far except maybe Jaskin who is 19.

No, I meant in general.

People overrate him based on the fact that people have been talking about him for 4 years and comparing him to Crosby. I get labelled a hater for not drinking the Cool Aid.

I think he'll be a very good NHLer, potentially a perennial all star but not in the Malkin Crosby Ovechkin etc level.

That's fair, it just seems like you go out of your way an inordinate amount to knock him down. I'm not really sure why it's necessary, especially if you think he could be a perennial all-star on top of it.

Everytime the topic of the draft comes up people assume he will be the top pick. I think once the dust settles he could slide like Gormley, Fowler and Couturier. He has questions about his attitude/seflishness as well as his vision on the ice that other top 5 candidates don't have.

Canada was really impressive. Drouin is amazing. He will start knocking for the first overall draft prospect.
