Obviously no comparison is perfect, Drouin is his own player, but he reminds me a bit more of Patrick Kane. Like Kane he has ridiculously good hands and great hockey IQ, both guys are shifty wingers, great playmakers but also good goal scorers, deadly offensive forces whose main weaknesses would be a lack of physicality and mediocre defensive play. Giroux is an OK comparison, but Giroux is a centre with more of a physical edge, I like the Kane comparison better.
