You said "We keep expecting Mac to be better than Drouin but it hasn't happened yet this year".
I've had season tickets in Halifax for the past two seasons. I know exactly what I'm talking about. I watched the Top Prospects game from the 7th row where MacKinnon was the best player on a poor Cherry team. I see your best bud Craig Button from time to time in the Metro Center because he certainly does not scout from Southern Ontario. I know he was in Chicoutimi and Baie Comeau Thursday and Friday because he understands the meaning of sample size outside of televised "showcase" games. I know that he has MacKinnon ranked ahead of Drouin as well.
I'm not sure who I'd take. I've stated this several times. I'm a fan of both players. What I don't do is act like I'm an authority on guys I've only seen a couple times on television. If I'm going to passionately argue about a prospect it's going to be about a player I've seen many times and in person. This board would be a better place if more people adhered to that. Opinions are great but so is humility.
