No way to either. Barkov is good, but his ceiling is not as high as MacKinnon. He will be a good NHL player (Barkov) but I don't know if he'll be a major point-producer.

Drouin is still a big risk. He's a lot of flash, but I wouldn't put him on MacKinnon's level cerebrally. Like I said before, I have no idea if all his junior tricks are going to work at the NHL level. MacKinnon to me could be playing in the NHL right now. Drouin is still further off. But Drouin seems to find a way to produce at whatever level he's playing at, so I have to give him credit for that. I'm still not 100% sold though, especially over Mac.

Thanks in advance.
Patrick Kane. On the prospects board, someone said Drouin's downside is Sam Gagner, and I'd agree a lot with that too.
