Is it possible if they both maintain that ppg for most of the season that Drouin could go before MacKinnon in the draft? i mean i get how dynamic McKinnon is but over 68 game thats 141pts for Drouin and 109pts for McKinnon, is he so much better that scout would forget about such a ppg difference and still pick McKinnon first?

Btw im not saying both will keep their respective PPG, Drouin could go down and McKinnon up but im still curious about what would happen if it stayed like that.
Scouts don't look at points in Junior as much as their translatable tools. Look at 2002 for instance, Pierre Marc-Bouchard Put up 140 points in 69 games and led the Q in scoring, but went 8th overall. In the same draft Rick Nash put up 72 points in 54 games in the OHL and went 1st. Nash was obviously the more translatable player and scouts saw that.
