Battle of the Jonathans: Huberdeau or Drouin?

A poll on two of the most promising Quebec born players: Jonathan Huberdeau or Jonathan Drouin? Who would you rather have?

The Hube for me. Has so much more to his game, and fits a direct/immediate need for the Flames. Wish we could have either.

They both possess their fair share of razzle dazzle but I wouldn't take either one of them if I was building a team. Just not my type of players I find them both real soft and Huberdeau has developed a bad, early days Crosby-like, *****ing at the ref attitude I can't stand. Drouin I've still yet to see him enough. I've seen him live twice last year where he was invisible and twice this year during flu season, I think. Scheduled to see him 3 or 4 more times this year, depending on if he plays in the U20s or if one of my trips to Halifax gets delayed (should be a late playoff game, they may be heading to the mem cup when I get there )

I like Drouin more, but I think Huberdeau will be the better player.

Drouin will be the better player but I'd rather have Huberdeau. If that makes sense.

I still voted Drouin though, because I'm biased because my team needs to win now, and Huberdeau has two years of development on him.

Drouin is better at 17 than Huberdeau was. That said Huberdeau's resume is pretty impressive. Tough call considering the age gap. Much less risk in Huberdeau as I believe he's got the size and strength to play in the NHL right now.

I`m fortunate enough to watch Drouin every home game living here in Halifax, but I take Hubs 8 days a week, what he is doing on a very weak Saint John team is amazing with the lack of talent he`s surrounded with.

Love Drouin`s offensive game, tons of work req`d defensively, and Drouin still hasn`t enough upper body strength to fight off checks the way that JH does/can at this stage

By that logic you'd take Will Carrier over them both?

Statistically yes. At the same time though, Huberdeau didn't have Nathan MacKinnon centering him or a player of similar ilk on his line. That's going to help Drouin. A lot. That's not to take away from Drouin but it has to be stated.

Huberdeau has the size advantage.

It is close though. Both incredibly potent players and incredible talents. At this point I'd take Huberdeau I think.

This.

I think Drouin is more dynamic offensively, but I think Huberdeau will be the more well-rounded played. Kind of a Toews vs. Kane thing.

Eh Huberdeau didn't have a bunch of slouches on his team, we are talking about the team that won the mem cup that year. Playing on Phillips wing with Jurco on the other wing and Bealieau on the point. In the end neither of these teams are as good without Drouin or Huberdeau but I would take Drouin.

Oh and Huberdeau is listed 6"1 175 and Drouin at 5"11 176(Both as per Elite Prospects) The 2 year age difference it is likely Drouin could add say 1 inch and say 10 pounds but the point is Huberdeau really doesn't have the size on Drouin

Drouin... I love both if them, but Drouin at 17 is a lot better.. Actually he's better at 15 and 16.

You should close this and start a Shinkaruk vs. Drouin thread

Gotta be Huberdeau, this guy is just better all around. Drouin might have the edge on offensive skill just by a bit but not much, Huberdeau IMO is just going to be a star in the league. He has all strong points in all areas of the game, and that is what builds a winner and what a team wants.

There's no chance Drouin goes first overall... People are hung up on point totals here.

Yakupov and Galchenyuk??

Also people who have Drouin and Mackinnon as first and second overall are forgetting Seth Jones.

And you are hung up on a couple games where you saw him and he didn't blow you away acting like that is who he is.
