    Drouin is a great talent, no doubt about it. But he doesn't seem to fit the actual mold of the team.

    Could he be disposible?? If so, i would try and solve our LHD issue by trading him. At the same time, i am ready to give him all the time he needs to reach his potential as the Habs are not going to be competitive this season and next's. So i would not sell him cheap and the return would need to be worth it.

    Would something around him and Nurse be something workable?? I know Edmonton need more D not less but since they got Bouchard and there are rumblings about Nurse maybe being disponible??

    Any other lhd from other teams that can fit in that kind of trade??

    Jonathan Drouin

    Edit: Just realized the premise of the Habs trading a forward is to cut down the # of forwards on their roster.

    If Gardiner is extended and let's say Habs add a 3rd I'd do it.

    I'd offer Kevin Hayes one for one, with an add, maybe a young defenceman like Sean Day?

    Hence the add, I'm sure he'd be pretty easy to resign, he hasn't had many contract disputes nor has he vocally said anything about preferring one destination to another. Alternatively, I'd offer Zibanejad one for one with no add

    Really not bad. At least it caught my eyes as i like Nylander alot and he would fit the Habs better than Drouin. Though, getting Gardiner does not solve our LHD issue, at least long term. My target would be Dermott. Don't know if something is workable though.

    Don't you think he could be disponible if it gets us a young top 4 LHD to play with Weber??

    I think that would be a solid trade for both teams actually

    Hayes is an easy no for me, even with Day added. Though Zibanejad would be fair value imo. That being said, i don't think Bergevin would target another C.

    There is no way one of Nurse or Klefbom are available or even remotely close to "dispensable". We can give you prospects and picks, thats about it.

    Is TSN reporting this as an actual rumor or even as speculation? I don't see any links to a corroborating source.

    How about Puljujarvi + 2019 1st (top 5 protected)?

    Don't make us look bad. You think the difference in value between Zibby and Hayes is Mr. "Can't skate and talk at the same time" Sean Day?

    Now, I know Zibby is having a rough start to the season but come on.

    I don't think MB's even considering to trade Drouin. Yes he's been pretty bad but the management saw a lot in him a year ago and that project is still running. But if he is indeed on the trade block and could be the centrepiece for Nylander then hell yes MB should go for it. I doubt that's the case, though.

    I'd take Nylander over Xavier LaFlamme by quite a bit personally. And I think the values of Gardiner and Petry are close to a wash. No thanks.

    I agree with you about all you said. Probably not going anywhere in the near future but if the trade makes sense, MB needs to keep his channel open.

    Cmon now...You get the younger player in both instance, and the gap between Nylander and Gally dwarfs the gap between Petry and Dermott.

    If you took back Sekera as a cap dump and made it top 10 protected, I would seriously look at that. 90% chance I pull the trigger. This is a very attractive deal for us because Pulju will probably be ruined under the **** coach that is Todd Mclellan. It's probably best for us and Pulju (no head coaching changes) to trade him elsewhere, preferably in the East.
