You can definitely see his potential, especially to be picked first overall, but he's still raw.
Drouin is so good offensively. He's not just a nifty winger. His skill is elite. Definitely deserving of the top 5 talk, and I could see him getting top 3 talk quite easily. Kid is too talented.
His size, defense and physicality might be the reason why he won't be a top 3 IMO, Drouin that is.
However I just hope we end up with a top 3 preferably but top 5 hopefully so we get a solid prospect. God damn it I want multiple picks in this draft
