Fucale

Drouin

I'm known to go a bit more for the "total lifetime value" vs "performance at prime" in my prospect assessments.
I find MacKinnon and Yakupov are very similar players in terms of size, speed and skill set. Not that MacKinnon is bad but a lot of guys are catching up to him, like Drouin who is a dynamic playmaker.
