Short answer, no he does not.

The Habs don't get a divine right to top 3 picks just because they parle français, so unless you want to trade Subban or something, trading up to the top 3 is near impossible. And at this point I can't see Drouin dropping below 3, unless Mackinnon and Barkov both do something extraordinary.

This draft has a reputation and no team is going to lose out on a top 6 or so pick unless they get something special.

The good news is this is the deepest Q draft class in a long time, so the Habs should get at least one, and probably more, good Québécois prospects out of this draft. But Drouin right now is putting up ridiculous numbers in a flashy way, he's not dropping.
