    So walking out on his AHL team when he was not called up to the NHL is now a business decision.

    Doesn't watch the games, nor checks up on stats.

    I think Drouin walking out makes him look a lot worse than anything NYlander has done.

    Don't know who to take in this soft off. Think Nylander has the better career.

    18 and 3 for Nylander, playing less than Kapanen a night. This is Drouin ainec.

    Still a small sample size.

    I agree with the bolded especially. I’m a Habs fan and have defended Drouin’s season but neither one of these guys is a player I’d feel confident going to war (playoffs).

    It only Gallagher’s compete level could rub off on Drouin and someone like Kapanen’s compete level could rub off on Nylander, they’d be much better assets.

    Saw off??
    Drouin has never done what Nylander has done on either side of the puck, and still isn't on pace to do so.
    Close but no.

    Soft off, not saw off.

    If the person I quoted meant to type saw off, that’s not the point inward trying to make. Unjust don’t feel either guy is a player I’d depend on to continually step in a playoff atmosphere.

    Nylander put up more in his rookie year than Drouin did in his career?

    Drouin had 14 pts in 17 games and was one of tampas best forward last time he was in the playoffs.

    Yes because we should base things off small sample sizes not the years where you know the guy didn't miss camp and the first two plus months of the year

    Nylander has better numbers in a shorter career and is more talented.

    Drouin has the better salary, better production and better hockey hair.

    Game set match, Drouin.

    This year, no other year. Nylander 1st 2 years he scored more than Drouin has in a longer career.

    That's why Drouin's salary is "Better", he has scored a lot less.
