He has a twin brother, that's probably his biggest weakness, teams probably think he won't produce without his brother, which is BS because he has top end hockey sense.

Whitesnake is absolutely right with his comment. This isn't the case of not being a good enough player, it's about a players history and where he plays. MacKinnon is simply good enough to be on the camp roster and definitely good enough to make them think about being a part of the main team.

This is the same team that cut RNH (look at what he's doing in the NHL). So obviously the Team Canada brain-trust isn't as perfect as you're lead to believe.
Come on now! The WJC tourney and the QMJHL regular season are completely different. Team Canada brass have watched him and have deemed he's not ready yet....they know a lot more than any of us.

RNH is a much better player now than he was a year ago. I think we all understand that these kids are developing many facets of their game quickly in their teenage years. Seguin and Duchene also didn't make Team Canada in their draft years. In any event, MacKinnon's not ready yet. He'll have his day.

I saw him on Sunday when London visited Brampton.

Still a ways from an NHL spot, his physical strength is not what I was hoping to see close-up and will need to mature for a couple of years in Hamilton if I had to guess. Didn't give up along the boards, but went down a bit too easily IMO for a 6'6" 19-year old.

Was pretty good on positional play and defensive awareness, but that first step could use improvement. Pretty good endurance though, 3rd game in 3 days and Dale Hunter had him playing what seemed to be half of the 3rd period in a tight game, to have him long all those minutes late in the game, including the last minute and a half of a 2-1 game was solid on the part of the coaching staff.

Gallagher with 2 assists tonight, that's 'only' 4 points in his last 5 games, he's goalless for that period too.

Where is he playing, prep school?

Too bad he didn't go play USHL. He needs more ice time than a 3 month schedule.

All he has to do is keep playing hard and working out the same way he was leading up to the draft.Colin should be a Yale freshman with high expectations next season.

Wow, the 2nd period isn't even over and Gallagher has a hat trick in a 4-4 game. This kid is dynamite.

He's been goalless for a few games I think. He's had enough

He's probably being rested a bit by Don Hay his coach in Vancouver and in Team Canada,not bad a hattrick before the halfway mark.Looking forward to the Habs prospects playing this year it just adds to the excitement.

Well, I really hope that Sullivan is the first and last of our prospects to stay in US High School after we have drafted him.

Badass poster. I think Beaulieu would benefit so much from a big tournament like this.

I would be the happiest man alive if Gallagher somehow grew to 6ft3. That alone would make sure he becomes a star in this league.

Give that kid human growth hormone, give him steroids, give him racing horses ****.

Well I'm not thrilled about that. Clearly. Just eager to see how he'll do. Yet, he has to do great at that level.

Well he is a 7th rounder. Who reaches the NHL when picked at that rank? Well not only I'm expecting him to reach the NHL but to play more than a filler role. Now....I'M not talking about top 2. I'm not THAT insane...
