It is a small sample and I don't get to see Drouin and MacKinnon in regular league play, but based on the Game 2 SSS, I would definitely have them as strong candidates for Team Canada, despite their age. They are just that good. Even in a lockout year with some other big name talent available which otherwise might not have been, I would be ready to find a spot for those two on the team... they would still have to earn it in camp, of course, they are not in the category of player who is a pre-camp lock, but I would definitely have them in camp and be thinking of them as strong candidates to win spots.
