Whereas Drouin has some work to improve defensively (and I have no doubt he will), it is quite unfair to refaif to him as if he were a perimeter player and didn't go into the corners or other traffic areas. He is not a physical player and does not have MacKinnon's natural physical strength/power but Drouin ain't afraid to get his nose dirty and he goes into the dirty areas à la Claude Giroux. One thing to add too is that Jonathan is a gamer who shows up when it matters and he is an incredible hard-worked, even in Halifax being the first on the ice, last off the ice type of guy at practices. I still have Mac slightly ahead and I expect it to remain that way until the draft but concerns about Drouin never improving his defensive play are far-fetched (and he is not terrible either) and comments about him staying on the perimeter are plain wrong.
