Gun to my head, Nate.

My reasoning is this. I think Drouin is going to have trouble scoring at the NHL level at first. Not because of his size, but rather because of his all around goal scoring ability. He has a very solid shot, but not a great NHL shooter yet IMO. Dangles with the best of them, but I think he's going to be dishing the puck a ton and racking up assists. Especially if he's playing with Stamkos in Tampa.

Nate on the other hand, will go to dirty areas a bit more and I think it'll result in him scoring more around the net, his shot is better the Drouin's as well.

Put it this way, when they hit their primes in 5 years, I would expect numbers like this.

Nate - 40 goals - 45 assists
Jo - 25 goals - 55 assists

Such a tough thing to predict, but I'd expect it to shake out a bit like that down the road. Both are going to be successful pro's, the kids just have to much drive not to succeed.
