Your logic is out to lunch.

What those guys will be as pros is completely irrelevant to what they are as junior players. You can build a stacked junior team that will break a ton of records and win the Memorial cup and have just 1-2 crack the NHL as depth players. Junior skill and NHL skill are not directly related. Just in the QMJHL there are at least 3-4 players other than Drouin that are better than Mackinnon this year, it doesn't mean they will be better than MacKinnon or even crack the NHL. Most are older obviously.
