“From what I’ve heard and what I’ve seen (another year) has made a big difference (for Drouin).

“I think it probably lit a little fire under him. He’s out there to prove a lot of people wrong and that’s a good thing for us. Physically he looks a lot bigger, stronger and his skating looks great, his shot looks great.

“He’s always had the quickness, the smarts and the playmaking ability, so it looks like he has worked extremely hard and that’s a good thing to see from a guy who has always been the best player on his team.’’

-Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jonathan Drouin.  More on Drouin from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune.

All the local guys that are know about this stuff just said he looked to young and didn’t have enough body on him yet. The extra year probably did him a world of good although to bad he couldn’t have played in the AHL. Thats a big growth year at that age so I don’t doubt he looks bigger and stronger, We all wanted to see him but everybody agreed it was the right move, they also got to move him to center also but I think he plays wing here.
