    You can't tell people things that they already know. Everyone here knew that JD needed to start well or the pitch forks would come out.

    He was good in Tampa Bay for half of a season. The excuse that MTL is too tough for him doesn't really fly when he struggled a lot in Tampa as well.

    That's why I never would have traded for a player that walked out on his team in a market where hockey is an after thought.

    You hang up the phone when a smarter GM is chatting with you dangling a 22 year old top 3 pick who happens to be a local , you are getting fleeced .

    He deserves it early on. He’s just a floater that lacks heart and grit.

    It's like he's playing pond hockey, he has no plan when he carries the puck.

    See my post above.

    Outside of a 4 month stretch JD was nothing special in Tampa Bay. The excuse that MTL is too hard for him because it's his hometown simply doesn't fly when he struggled for the most part in Tampa as well.

    He will never get the 27 treatment who was bashed for years with his defensive play

    Drouin will be traded in a year or two max for another trouble case somewhere else(if he has any value obviously) or they will buy his contract, mark my words today!

    This is an imperative year in Drouin’s career IMO, at 23 he either figures it out and starts the path to serious progression or what we see is what we get. The positive is he’s got Dom Dom to help achieve the positive path...


    “We haven’t reached the ultimate, of where you walk into the building and you can sort of smell victory. But we’re a step closer to that this year than we were last year.”


    “So now the pressure’s on to replicate.”
    - Geoff Molson
