People always seem to think just because a player, play a "finesse" game that it won't translate......Usually how you end up seeing steals. Drouin isn't that small, he will never be a force physically but I also don't see him ever getting pushed around. He is 17 years old 5"11 185, he could realistically still add 10-15 pounds to him and maybe another inche(maybe). Whatever team gets him is damn lucky, they are getting the most gifted player offensivley in this draft.
