He is definitely improving his stock at that tournament, while guys like MacKinnon and Jones aren't doing a whole lot to help their own. Still, don't allow his play over the course of two weeks to be the reason for drafting him so high. I realize he's having a great season in the Quebec league, however I think we would be getting more out of some of the other guys available in this range.

What I really like about Jonathan Drouin are the things I'm hearing from his teammates right now; things like "his energy is non-stop and I think it's contagious" (paraphrasing Scott Harrington) ... this is a guy that would fit right into our leadership core, and I can't argue that he'd be a great addition. That being said, I'd still rather come away with one of the more dominant, well-rounded prospects. If we can get two picks in the top-6 or 7, then absolutely, this guy would be a great pickup.
