I think MacKinnon's vision is higher than Drouin's, and though he isn't as creative or flashy, I really believe he is the better hockey player, and in the long run is more of a game changer than Drouin is.

I'm a big fan of Drouin, and I thought his WJC performance was a real eye opener for a lot of people. I still don't see him going above third overall.
Yeah, I still think Mac will be the better player Drouin has just elevated himself into my tier 2. (Tier 1 is Jones & Mac, Tier 2 is Barkov and Drouin)

What do you think of the new ISS rankings? I am still really surprised by alot of their choices (particularly where guys like Nichushkin, Barkov, Domi, Erne, and Mantha are ranked, or in the case of Mantha not ranked)
