I think any deficiencies you may see in his performance there are due to the TOS-hating producers/writers of TNG....
Rick Berman got the job on TNG partly because he did not know TOS, and Roddenberry told him not to go researching it, because it gave him a fresh and unique eye, different to his own, Justman's, Gerrold's and Fontana's. I can't see them all sitting back and saying, "Yeah, make McCoy admire Data 'cos we are sniping at TOS", or because Berman told them to.

"Unification" was by Berman, Taylor and Pillar. I never got the sense that they "hated" TOS.

in the first episode McCoy just admired the pants of Data. What do you expect from Berman?
Ummm, Rick Berman had little to do with "Encounter at Farpoint". Roddenberry, Justman, Gerrold and Fontana were hardly TOS haters.

The McCoy scene was written solely by DC Fontana, with great affection for McCoy.
