  2. i dont get it, is he saying he's as good as Sidney Crosby(who's name he misspelled?) or just drawing parallels in their lives?

    I think the better question is is there a first?

    Kid appears to have all the tools, I'll probably get a better idea when I get the opportunity to see him in 2012-2013, which will be his draft season. I don't think he'll be quite as good as Crosby, but he does have that 100 point potential.

    Hmm, in NHL 11 they used the CHL rosters from the year before so there were no rookies in the game.

    interesting comment on the bottom of article. 2012 draft- #1 dynamic russian Yakupov (ovechkin) #2 taller but highly skilled russian Grigorenko (malkin). then 1 year later at the 2013 draft - Crosby version 2 from cole harbour ns Mackinnon. Then the CBA expiry is 2013 similar to 2005.

    People having been saying this for awhile. Similar circumstances but I doubt we'll lose any games in 2013 or MacKinnon will be even as close to as good as Crosby.

    What a terrible article. Looks like something out of a fourth grade class. "My hero is Nathan Mackinnon. I think he is good and he is really good at hockey. He is good because he is big and fast and is good."

    Wow, that article still needs some serious editing. That's a bit embarassing to TSN that it even made it onto the website with some of the spelling errors (not to mention that he originally mispelled Crosby's name - how do you do that?). Pure fluff, but then again Walling is an Atlantic Canada reporter. Not to knock Mackinnon, I'm excited about this kid. But wow that's a bad article lol.

    OP, you just need to read scoutman1's posts on the kid and it will fill you in.

    OP: Yes, there is real to expect big things out of MacKinnon. He is an incredible talent.

    However, the Crosby comparisons are mainly because of the journey he's taken in his career thus far, where he's from, etc. His numbers on the various teams he played for are quite a bit below Crosbys, but they are still very very good stats.

    this guy will not be the next Sidney Crosby but IMO he will be the next Steve Stamkos.

    He said Francis Turbide was the Mooseheads best player last year lol, maybe he was thinking Carl Gelinas?

    Other than that, there is a huge forum on the topic.

    My work day just got a lot better :laugh:, thank you.

    I was reading the article myself and thought, so the guy who is what 15, is doing similar things to Crosby when he is still towering above other kids is supposed to be the "next" Crosby (when Crosby is still active and not even in his prime yet...). I think once he starts playing around kids all the same size we will find out.
