Drouin - 5'11", 185lbs
Mackinnon - 6'0", 182lbs
On another note, team Canada at the world juniors have been having a HUGE problem scoring goals for the past 5 years or so... Having a line like Drouin, Mackinnon, Huberdeau is exactly what the team needs...
Also I like Monahan as well, but to go along with your reasoning of having too many 17 year olds on the team. I'd go with Drouin and Mackinnon because of chemistry and scoring ability. An extra forward, IF any of them make it; is what they will probably be. Someone with scoring ability and better skating will win out especially on the bigger ice. Not more of a defensive minded player, even though Monahan can score.
Where do you get your stats? Canada has led the tournament in scoring or at the top all these past 5 years or so...
in 08 wasn't exactly a high powered octane offence, but we still came home with the gold medal.... BTW on big European ice.
