Schremp and Drouin are not really comparable aside from their hands and size. Schremp is a one dimensional player who relied on flashy plays. Big reasons why he never succeeded in the NHL.

Drouin has a solid all around game (not as solid as MacKinnon's) that will allow him to have a decent NHL career. Pair that with his sky rocketing hockey IQ and the guy has the chance to be an excellent NHL player.

Players Drouin has been mostly compared to are St. Louis, Patrick Kane, and Claude Girioux. All of which are top line players.
