Drouin has the potential to lead the league in Points. MacKinnon is more of a guy who'll score a lot but won't make linemates better(Vanek Yakupov Kovalchuk).
You must not have watched Kovy after the first 2 months last year, he became a premier playmaker. He went from being more selfish than OV8 to showing more hockey IQ than Parise.

I hope we don't end up being in a position where we can draft Drouin (as much as I love his game), while a guy like Barkov is available. A duo of him and Galchenyuk at center for the next 15 years would make our wing prospects infinitely better, and we would become contenders within 5 years.
