His vision is almost undeniably better. As far as overall offensive ability goes he probably still has more in the Q, but many people (myself included) feel that MacKinnon's offensive game will translate better in the pros. I

It is players like Drouin that give the Q a reputation for producing "all offensive no defense" type players. Amazing hands, vision, quick, flashy, but invisible physically and lacking in their own end. I'm by no means saying he will be one of these players, but there have definitely been quite a few flashy junior players who rack up the points until they get to the next level.

Best case scenario: Kane/Briere

Worst Case: Schremp
