    He will, this is the point of his return when one starts feeling the effects of being a year off...plus its not like his minutes are being tapered, he's being asked to do what he always does and to do it with a 20 year old by his side who has his ups and downs.

    Despite that Weber has exceeded expectations, his offensive numbers are pretty much what they always are.

    FWIW - Drouin is presently 20th in the league in PPG for players earning between $5M - $6M. No one above him is younger than him & only 4-players have lower cap%

    And Drouin has ZERO defensive awareness. He’s Chuckie with a french name.

    ....And if Drouin is better on D or more consistent he makes WAY more.

    Fans fall in love with guys like Byron, Lehkonen and Armia because they block a shot or lift a stick now and again even though they only score once every 10 games.

    Drouin is 2nd in team scoring the team was awful last year and are in their 1st year of a retool. He is 23. Maybe give it some time?

    Tatar is having a better season than JD.

    He has 3 less points, he has also been in the NHL 3 years longer and is 5 years older.

    Be as patient as you want. I’m not trying to change your mind. I hope it works out.

    1 1/2 seasons with this team. He has already matched last season point total. He is 10 points from Chuckys 7 season high and on pace for 64 points.

    He needs to be better, but he is progressing. He just came off a 6 game stretch where he was unstoppable. Hardly comparable (at this point) to Chuckys up and down 7 year stretch with the team IMO.

    Chucky was never given free reign on top pp duties . The second he made a defensive blunder he is relegated to bottom 6 duties .

    He still popped 30 goals on a worse team than we have right now .

    Not defending either player but the rooskie would never get away with shit like JD is right now .

    Both players have identical PPG but 27 has a better GPG stat.

    His leash is 10 feet longer because he is French .

    Regardless who is behind the bench , both players have the same I expected more career up to now

    That 9 point stretch saved JD from possibly another write off season .

    Julien has started to call out JD by name in his post game pressers.

    Oh, I'm sure Clod would ship him off for a couple of hard-working duds that would fit into his "team" concept. Preferably big,slow fourth line grinders,

    I dont think its a language issue, its simply that Drouin was acquired for an A level blue chip prospect and lets be honest can this lineup afgord to sit skill like that?

    I look at at Hudon and to be honest he is sitting more than he deserves and he’s francophone
    Go Habs Go!

    This was a trade to appease the French media and ease the sting of the PK trade .

    This was never a hockey deal . If his last name was Drewan it never happens

    Hudon is a slug and not relevant on this team

    Not suggesting to sit him out at all

    He simply has a longer leash than most because he is a local kid.

    If his last name was Drewan he would of taken way more abuse.
