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.
Although he does have the potential to have the skill set to be a Kane or St. Louis if he pans out, he could be comparable to them in the future. But, at this moment, Drouin reminds me a lot of Shremp. Although Drouin has a slight advantage on Shremps skating at this point, it's a similar situation. I obviously thing Drouin will be more successful than Shremp, but still compare them.
