He's 209 now.
Pouliot was a product of Crosby in junior. Draisaitl is all on his own in PA. Big difference.

Also, why does he have to be the next Pouliot? He could also be the next Kopitar or Thornton and Bennett could be the next Brule.
I would also take Bennett over Draisaitl but I don't understand why he's being dismissed as a bum by some of you.
He's a big, very skilled center who needs to work on his skating and defensive game. This isn't unusual for highly regarded big kids.
