Never in a million years would I.

Mantha has a tendency to be very lazy shift to shift. He uses his size to his advantage a little too much, in that he just overpowers the competition on pure strength, rather than effort. That won't fly in the NHL. It's a bad habit a lot of bigger players in major juniors have a tendency to develop.

Even if he breaks these habits and gets his head straight at the NHL level, Drouin is way more dynamic than he is.

Players like Anthony Mantha are why you really have to watch games to get a feel on what these players can do.
