I'm in the MacKinnon camp here. I love Drouin, but it's not like his hands and vision are that much better than MacKinnon's. In fact, I do not thing the difference is wide at all.

I do think Drouin has better hands in tight, but MacKinnon does have the ability to puckhandle at top speeds a la Kovalchuk. Likewise, Drouin is a very gifted playmaker, but MacKinnon's vision is nothing to sneeze at: he can make creative plays himself, and his overall IQ is every bit as good as Drouin's when you consider the entire ice.

Drouin is slick as hell though.
