Drouin is compared to Kane not Toews, from what I have seen. It is Mackinnon who plays center and this year he has been working on his face-offs and defense from waht Ive gathered from Halifax fans. As for the comparison someone said about Mackinnon and Legwand. No way. This year is so much stronger then the 98 draft year that he is on a whole different level offensively then Legwand was. Mackinnon has been emerged as a number 1 pick for quite some time. Where as Drouin just got into the top 10 this year. I honestly think Mackinnon is the most NHL ready, but Drouin will be the more skilled guy of the two. I will be happy with either.
