Because we need a LWer going forward and Drouin is one with elite potential? Not saying I'd give the world for him but it's not as if he doesn't fill an important need. We lack both a second line LWer and RWer. Perhaps with Drouin there is less pressure to get a very good RWer as opposed to someone like Vrbata. Or we end up more or less giving up on the year, allow Price all the time he needs to get ready and retool during the off season.
