If HF loves 2 things its big centers. Thus why Barkov will be claimed to be the steal of the draft if he goes 4th
I agree. I am certainly not qualified to make the following statement because I havent seen these prospects as much as others, but after watching Drouin, Im just not sold on that his creativity will be as successful in the NHL. Again, I could be completely wrong, but Im just going by what I have seen. In regards to the Panthers, in their 20 years of existence, they have never had that center that you could consider top line talent. Bjugstad could become that top line center, but with MacKinnon, they are pretty much guaranteed to have one heck of a 1-2 punch down the middle.
