I don't know, if the Avs keep climbing you can avoid the problem and draft Drouin
Drouin - Duchene - Landy
Yeah... Or Landeskog on his natural left-wing and Drouin at Duchene's right. Everytime I've seen Drouin make something crazy, it was from the right-wing so...
It would be a shame for Nathan MacKinnon to end up a winger ! The kid may play there to help a bit, and his game is suited for the wing as some say. But he puts to much work into being a good centerman to bring him up as a winger. MacKinnon is dynamic ! He'll end up being good wherever they put him.
But my Panthers need a center, and he is one of a kind ! I really hope we end up drafting him.
He'll be a center, bank on it.
RG, if you want a winger, you'll never be wrong by picking Drouin... Even if it is at numbero uno !
All three kids are special.
But I'm on the MacKinnon-bandwagon !
