I worry about Drouin's ability along the boards in the NHL.

He's still a very good prospect that I would love in this organization, but I still think MacKinnon will be chosen before.
He didn't seem to have any trouble working the boards or dekeing through arguably the best D corpse Sunday vs Blainville. He made the best D in the league, Ouellet, look like a fool on one play.

As for your 2nd point, I agree. Mackinnon will be chosen before. Because he's closer to the NHL. But I'd pick Drouin because he'll be the best player down the road.
