Surprised to see Gauthier rise that much.
Was thinking exactly the same thing.
Barkov and Lindholm are more proven, have played more games, and are bigger. The truth may be that Drouin will exceed expectations and become more than them in the NHL, but since drafting is a risk-managing task, and that Barkov and Lindholm may have the same ceiling as him, I predict he won't come out before those two.
I may be wrong, we'll see where it goes in time, but I feel the one who'll take Drouin before Barkov or Lindholm AT THIS POINT of the season is neglecting the risks only to see the possible rewards.
The Gauthier rise raises a lot more questions, and I'd like Jerome to provide us with explanations since it is a daring prediction. I'm intrigued.
As for me, I'm happy you kept Ristolainen up there with the best. From what I've seen, he'll be an awesome prospect to watch develop in the years to come.
