The bolded needs to stop being said. Drouin is 25 years old, we know what he is. An inconsistent 50+ point winger with an 80 point skillset who will leave fans wanting more. The problem lies in people putting too much stock in the "wanting more". In general, people need to stop focusing on what a player isn't instead of what a player is. If you are 6'4, put up 50 points but play soft you are a detriment to your team, yet a 5'8 player who could play the exact same way would be lauded. People put too much stock into what a player "could be" and when they don't live up to it, ignore the things they actually do. Jonathan Drouin is a skilled winger who lacks the ability to maintain a consistent high level of play. Could he put up an 80 point season? Absolutely. Will he do it more than once? Unlikely. Will he do it ever? Quite possibly not. No team should target Drouin with the idea that he leads their offense night in night out. But if you have talent up and down your roster to insulate his inconsistency than there will be success. Do teams have interest right now without moving money? Hard to say. Covid is strange times and there are still some FA's out there who may make more financial sense. But the Habs would absolutely not have to pay to get rid of Drouin. They may have to be willing to take some bad $$ back to make it work financially. There is no world where he has negative value right now. He's still as is said, a 50+ point winger on a contract representative of that level.
