"Tom Wilson and Mark McNeil are not better players than Drouin, but with how TC puts the team together, their odds of making it are probably higher going into the camp."

They are better if their responsibilities will include tough match ups and PK. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that you don't just take the 12 most skilled forwards/top 20 most skilled players and think you will win. Plus when looking at guys like MacKinnon, Drouin and Lipon guys like that would not be nearly as productive getting less ice time and no PP time.
