Personally I find that Drouin is being exteremly overrated on HF and MacKinnon is extremely underrated.
It's very rare when a guy who has a good chance of going first overall is underrated, but Mackinnon definitely is. People are enamored with Drouin's hands, they ignore everything Mackinnon does better, and the fact that his hands are still elite.
