as for danault, he did just fine. he played a role, he isn't accustomed too and did good in that said role.
difference between drouin and mckinnon is that drouin is able to play at this level but mckinnon struggled in camp... drouin was so impressive he ended playing on the first line with scheeifle and nugent-hopkins and SCORED instead of huberdeau... on the other hand mckinnon was benched and when he had a little of ice time he was frustrated and took VERY bad frustration penalties.
btw danault knows a lot about penalty killing... he came in the qmjhl at 16yrs old being one of the good penalty killers in the league... but he wasnt impressive with 1 assist in the tournament
