IMO, I think Drouin is superior at making his team mates better,and he has the creativity that our team sorely lacks.
You're right about almost all of those things, but Mackinnon is by FAR the better skater, easily tops in this draft class and quite possibly the best draft-eligible skater since Ovechkin.

Mackinnon is probably the "safer" guy because his work ethic is strong, he has surprising strength for his size, and he's already proven to be valuable defensively. But in terms of pure, offensive upside, Drouin is the clear winner. He BLEEDS hockey sense, and his vision and hands are ridiculously sick. Imagining him with Stamkos and St. Louis is just completely unfair.
