    At 19 years old on a very good team on which it was tough to get icetime?
    Well... it shows that he can produce, if anything.

    And the trade request was made far, far before he was sent down.

    Honestly tho, what's the appeal of drouin?
    He hasn't proven a thing in the pros. Small, doesn't back check, and most certainly doesn't 'grind'.
    We're gonna give up big assets for a guy therrien is just going to wind up benching or better yet, scratching cuz he isn't playing like davey?

    You are correct. His agent had made the trade request privately in November.

    Both of them playing in the NHL currently while Drouin is drying up in the minors. Wonder who the real valuables are... Oh wait, no I don't, it's pretty obvious who they are!

    Really withoit giving up anyone? We will pay through the nose, you think there are not other teams out there that would like this player? It will cost us Galychenyuk but I bet it ends up being Gallagher. MB and mT are stupid enough to do this.

    I don't know how I feel about those stats, as I said I have a hard time with junior stats

    I dont disgree with what you wrote.

    But I was just trying to make a point that these two teams will be hard on him because of the allure of pairing these two great young players with Drouin once again.

    Not to mention the rest of the herd...

    Drouin's production has been more impressive than Ehler's in the NHL this season and last.

    Small caveat : I'd add that Huberdeau was, all in all, slightly better surrounded (much better support from the D at least; Drouin had McKinnon and Ehlers, but Huberdeau had better "quantity" helping him).

    Those two Saint John teams were scary good and it a shame they didn't win the Mem Cup back-to-back.

    Beaulieu for Drouin is a no brainer

    For Bob Mac to report something there has to be substance to it.

    Drouin outplayed Mackinnon for team Canada as an underager. Guy has mad skills. A good development coach could turn this guy in a real player. While we don't have one right now. Drouin is young. And management personnel can change.

    Isn't that the ultimate dichotomy? Drouin would be forced into the grinder.

    From the recent looks of things, our first round pick in the next draft is starting to look very good by the days. I wonder if this could be a weapon to put into a Drouin trade, without giving up too much of what we already have....
