Giroux is fair though... If this kid played D like even abit like Dats he would be a carbon copy...

Kind of a rarity around here, people actually talking based on first hand observations.

Very different, but very complimentary style to Mackinnon as well.
One of the guys covering the game for Eastlink TV put it best, though I can't claim this is an exact quote, it was something along the lines of:

'You can't get caught looking at the puck, you have to play the body against Drouin, because he's going to do what he wants with the puck."
This made me laugh and it really shouldn't since that's what it always should be.
