I agree with everyone's sentiments, Drouin is and will be just fine in the NHL. I just find it amusing that the slightly taller (as if 1" changes a person's stature from short to tall but I digress) MacKinnon with a much more reckless style of play is immune from the concerns about his stature, yet the shiftier and heavier Drouin has size concerns.

To me Marty has shown everyone that regardless of size, if you have a strong core and more importantly a strong center of gravity you can survive in the NHL. And just like Marty with Drouin's hockey sense he will not only survive but also thrive.

Pete, I like the bowling ball description. Just like the "best shift" clip, hopefully in the future more guys will bounce off thinking this "little" Drouin is easy to knock off his skates
