    In this current Covid flat cap world does Drouin (considering his contract) have even any positive value?

    He has value, but I am not sure that it would make sense for Montreal to trade him based on what he may return at the moment.

    I like Drouin. As others have stated, his contract is hardly crippling and he certainly has value to Montreal's lineup.

    No he does not. The Habs should keep him and see how he does now that he’s surrounded with a better cast of forwards. Absolutely no reason to try and dump him now, he has undeniable skills and his value right now is at an all time low.

    I don’t think he had positive value pre-covid. Perhaps if 3-4M was going back the other way he could have gained a 2nd or 3rd

    In this cap world its hard to say as he still produces 50plus points and has untapped offensive potential. I can see an argument both ways. The expectations on Drouin were sky high and he has not met them.

    That said, Habs are not interested in dealing him especially after he and Suzuki demonstrated to have chemistry and co-led the Habs in points in the playins.

    with Josh Anderson added, Habs fans are excited to see thr Drouin-Suzuki-JA line play. Hence, no interest in trading Drouin.

    So Drouin has value to the Habs lineup, but (because of his contract) no real trade value?

    Jost does suck, but Mete is far worse and shouldn’t be in the NHL. Anderson after a serious injury still had team control. The extension is universally recognized as ridiculous and likely the worst extended deal in the league.

    I believe he has trade value. But I don't know if he would return as much in trade to offset his current importance or value to Montreal's lineup.

    That’s the only opinion you have stated that makes any sense. Jost is horribad and any contract with a caphit that exceeds 1M would be awful.

    Look once you claimed that 735K contract is considered a cap dump your credibility went down the poop chute.

    Mete is not an NHLer on most teams, the $735K is extremely valuable to teams pushed to their cap limits.

    Im not sure if this guy is trolling about mete :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    That said we are better off keeping Jay Dee he wont bring back anything that would help us more than he potentially could. Hes still a 40-50 Point player and will probably have his best season on the habs if he plays with suzi

    Again, you clearly have no clue how the cap works. Any team with Mete who considers him not NHL material can simply dump him in the AHL with no cap hit to the NHL team.

    Therefore, once you claimed that 735K contract is considered a cap dump your credibility went down the
    poop chute

    The 1st should be going to other way. And I still doubt the Flames do it.

    I'd give up a 3rd for him but I'll admit I've been a huge Drouin fan since juniors and a 4th or 5th Is more realistic.

    Why trade for a player, absorb a $735K 1-way RFA contract to dump them in the AHL? He’s not an NHL player. Trade will result in a negative value.

    Look once you claimed that an HF posters comment made you burst out laughing like your some sort a crazy person sitting at their computer laughing out loud at an insignificant comment you read, your credibility went down the poop chute.

    Or is it possible that you may have exaggerated a bit to get your point across?

    Brutal is definitely hyperbole but his skills definitely didn't translate that well to the league. He's still a solid player.

    Eh, I disagree. Anyone who can be the worst player on the ice for a 25 game stretch isnt a solid player. Habs are my 2nd team and I watch a lot of them and I was very high on Drouin before I started watching him almost every game. His highs are very good, near elite, but his lows are truly some of the worst I've ever seen. When he's not on, he is hurting the team all over the ice. There are other guys who arent doing much when they arent scoring, but his stretches are amongst the longest and he truly brings nothing but detriment when he isn't on. He gets frustrated, sulky, and the epitome of brutal. His skills are not the problem.

    This is the last season for Drouin in Mtl. Either Seattle bound or traded for peanuts.

    Drouin cap hit of $5.5M is not easily absorbed for most teams. Another player needs to be moved to make this work. Schmidt - LVK is a much better player playing LD. A much more difficult role, he earns approx the same/term and was finally moved for a 3rd.

    Approx. 13 teams have the space to absorb his current cap hit. Realistically, only 2-3 can make this work and resign they’re existing players. So unless a returning player returns to lessen the financial hit, he has little value.
