    I think Drouin has a higher ceiling points wise playing his natural position (wing), not sure Galchenyuk will ever be a center on a good team.

    Neither, both are looking like busts for where they were picked.

    Gun to my head I take Galchenyuk.

    Disappointing? Yeah.
    Busts? Nah. Both players have hit 50 points. Are either players top 6 players on a cup contender? Probably not.

    Drouin is more skilled, Galch will be the better centre

    I don’t see why not. How many teams have 6 forwards capable of putting up 50+ points? Not a whole lot.

    Washington just won the cup with Vrana and Stephenson both getting time in the top-6. Drouin and Galchenyuk would have been easy choices for the second line LW.

    Drouin at wing, he is going to be a star. Breakout year this season, at least 65 points i'd predict.

    Galchenyuk. Drouin does a whole lot of nothing for me. Lots of turnovers and selfish play.

    I was hoping to see JR go after Galchenyuk, I think he has more to give then how he performed in Montreal
    With that said though, I do think Drouin is the better all around player. But it's close
