Drouin might be the most offensively gifted player drafted in the last 5 years, it's far from being a terrible trade, how about if Colorado adds Erik Johnson and we add a piece or two?
Look at the previous "greatest draft year ever". Who was picked at number 4 like you want Drouin at? Zherdev.

Top 5 picks don't all go on to become MVP calibre players. If he ends up like a Nathan Horton or Kyle Turris we will be very disappointed. If he ends up as a Brule, Alexeev, Svitov, Pouliot, etc. moving Subban for him could set our franchise back years.
