It's amazing how deep this draft is. I think had he been in last years draft he'd definitely be in talks for first overall. It's hard to gauge his value, particularly when compared to Mackinnon in this tournament, since Drouin is getting more of an oppurtunity to be successful compared to Nathan. I think Mack is more complete and will be taken ahead of Drouin, but I think he can certainly be in the talks for top 3 or 4, with guys like Barkov, and Lindholm. Nonethless, this kid is going to be special and anyone who drafts in the top 5 is going to have a legitimate star in their hands, especially with a guy like Drouin.

If a team like Boston, LA kings, Pittsburgh, or Philly drafts in the top 5, I would be disappointed, this is the draft where bad teams can actually turn around their franchises with players like these in their line up in the near future. Great draft.
