If he's dishing more pucks to other people, instead of the other way around, there better be a very deserving trigger man on the other end, that's all I'll say.
What are you talking about? Drouin's shot is nothing to write home about. Most of his goals are not snipes. Kessel's shot is his bread and butter. Drouin best skill is his passing and vision. He does not look to shoot nearly as much as Kessel. It's really not hard to understand why Drouin does not compare well to Kessel.
If we're looking for a Kessel comparison, Shinkaruk is much, much better. As has been mentioned by other people.
