I've seen Drouin play, he's a fun, dynamic player who can create chances in the offensive zone. But without someone moving the puck from their own goal-line or carrying it through the neutral zone he's not going to have a lot of chances to show his stuff. It used to be their greatest area of need was size down the middle, but at least they had PK who could carry the puck up the ice, and Markov with the good outlet pass. They still don't have size down the middle, no first-pass or dynamic d-man to carry it, so they will rely on wingers to carry the puck from their own blue line. Good luck winning all those 1-0 SO games.
