You sure have not watched as many Moose games as you pretend if you believe that "MacKinnon is light years ahead of Drouin in every department". He simply is not. Educated scouting opinion has it that Drouin has the better hockey sense and better hands. On the hand, MacKinnon has the edge in skating, shot and physical play. Don't get me wrong, I still have MacKinnon slightly ahead of Drouin and I believe it will stay that way.

Drouin is seen as a contender to be picked in the top-5 by folks at Redline and Craig Button amongst others. He is perceived as one of the fastest rising prospects in this year's draft. There is a reason why posters are excited by the prospect of the Habs drafting him.
