I like drouin a lot too, but I'm always wary of smaller guys, especially wingers, and their ability to translate their offense to the nhl level. He is an awesome talent though.

Even with all our struggles though, this team is just too talented to finish with a top 3 pick. I just don't see it happening. Missing the playoffs is a possibility with the wonkiness of the season but I don't realistically see us finishing with any higher than a 10-15 pick.

If that were the case I'd really like them to pick Anthony Mantha. I think he's going to be a star.
