    How else would you judge Drouin other than his point total? His Selke level defensive play? :laugh:. Guy is a liability if he's not scoring.

    Who’s flaming away?

    I’m posting you links to articles that show a players prime, in clear dispute of your claim that Drouin at 24, is entering his prime years.

    You don’t wctually want to discuss it in good faith. You just have your opinion, refuse to acknowledge the statistical evidence, call my opinion BS, and then try to shut it down as a difference of opinion.

    Drouin is finishing up his prime, or soon will be.

    A one dimensional winger, who doesn’t PK, can’t play Center, isn’t physical, with consistency issues at the one thing he’s supposed to excel at, offense.

    I’m sure we can find options that don’t require Byram.

    Oh wait, we already did.

    This is not all about Byram. It's about Drouin too. But what you see as comments is Byram is a sure shot top pairing guy and Drouin is going to go backwards in value.

    This trade idea just don't work for more reasons than one. There are very few trades like this we can find from the past. And the reason is not just Byram.

    Well we did get Sergachev (our #2D next year) for Drouin.

    Close this nonsense of a thread.

    It’s been universally rejected by nearly all non-Hab fans.

    There’s nothing to discuss.

    No, you are the one talking nonsense by saying prime years are from 22-25. All you are saying is the elite level talent have prime years that start earlier. Prime years don't stop at 25. Come on man

    Byram is the more unique piece in this proposal. Top-pair potential defenseman that were just drafted at 4th overall are never traded unless it's a Jones for Johansen deal.

    Drouin is a pretty run-of-the-mill top-6 winger, and those never garner pieces like Byram in return.

    Yeah yeah rub it in, you guys have both our LHD we should've kept :laugh:

    Drouin was still more of a mystery box then and we paid a premium for his ‘heritage’

    A baffling premium based on how that offseason played out and the subsequent hole in our left side, who knew Alzner couldn’t fill that slot...

    I have no idea how many times Avalanche fans have to tell you guys we don't want Petry, Drouin, or Price.

    Yet I’m the one who’s provided statistical evidence from multiple places.

    You on the other hand...

    Yet, my position is the nonsensical one.

    Yup, same story, different day.

    I was simply responding to the notion that a young top 4 defenseman can only be acquired through the draft.

    And there Eric Johnson's contract ends freeing up $6 million.

    Kotkaniemi with 8 points this year, Habs fans "Guys relax hea only 19, hes still a top 3 pick. This means nothing".

    Byram having a similar offensive year to last year, same Habs fans "His stock is plummeting! We will give you a 50ish point winger for Byram but you might have to add. He might be a bust".

    The draft is the single most reliable way of acquiring young talent, and pretty much the only way to get elite talent on their ELC. Yes, there are exceptions, but I don't think any team is going to expect to be able to trade for a Seth Jones level player in any given year. Those kinds of players simply don't get traded, so you either draft them, or you don't get them.

    I'd make that trade again, pre-injury Drouin was life, he'll be back :yo:

    Lol. Not remotely close. Sure many Habs fans are saying relax, he is only 19. But there are plenty calling Kotkaniemi a bust and talking about how we should have picked Hughes etc.

    Okay, so no to Petry, no to Drouin or Price. What about Centre Max Domi and what would you trade for him if interested ?
