But yeah, he's a hell of a good player.

I really think Drouin has elevated his status a lot already in this tournament. I think MacKinnon isn't seeing a lot of minutes, but he really hasn't shown much in his opportunities. You would expect more from the general consensus #1 pick. MacKinnon hasn't been bad, and isn't an overly flashy player to start with, but he's looked quite average. I get that he's 17, but I thought he would be a little more physically dominant in this tournament. I still think he's an elite prospect, but I'm not so sure I'd take him at #1 if that pick fell on the Flames lap. If Drouin keeps this momentum going he could easily go in the top 5 to.

I've also quite liked Rattie's game.
I'm pretty sure he's already widely considered a top 5 pick (some say top 3). After Mac, Jones, and Barkov I think he's the best prospect at the draft (thus far) I've been so impressed with his play.

I was also shocked when the Jets took Scheifele. They have made some solid picks the last two drafts Trouba is a beast!
