It's entirely because he's the best Quebecois prospect in a few years. It's time to let go though, Drouin is going top 3, forget about it. It's starting to sound like Leafs fans expecting Tavares to be their savior becuase he's from the GTA.
The trade was an 8th overall pick AND Brandon Sutter, pretty good player in his own right. Staal is bigger and younger but Plekanec has more offensive skill.

The scouting world in general LOVEs Drouin, just about everybody has him top 3, that has nothing to do with being french, spanish, italian or wahtever.
