    Drouin has his issues he continues to deal with, and, assuming he’s successful in doing so, and IF he wants to return to playing in the NHL, you’re at a point where getting something is better than nothing. NHL GM’s are only going to give you pennies on the dollar if that is the case. Drouin is the joker in the deck right now.

    Sad to say but it's true. It'll be interesting to see what we can get for him. But fans need to keep their expectations very muted. I'd expect him to move at the daft.

    This may very well be as good as we'll be able to get, sadly. Actually paying Seattle to take him is a distinct possibility.

    this is of course based on the assumption that Drouin returning is not an option. Nothing definitive there yet, though probably fair to say that it looks highly unlikely he ever suits up for the habs again.

    I too would like to get more than that in return, the question is of what value we can source.

    2x2nd and a young depth player that adds an element of physicality that we lack in our depth players right now, seems a pretty good return unless you think that his issues this year + the abundance of top-9 fwds that will be on the market this summer won't negatively affect the demand or trade interest for him.

    I don't we're getting top-6/50+ point under 30 value for him... to get similar value to what Shaw/Eller moved for in recent years would be, imo, pretty solid.

    LAK... Ducks... Coyotes...Sens...Devils... that's about it as far as teams with both cap space and need that may be willing to trade for Drouin without sending bad money back. and that's only if their ownership is willing to take on the $, which isn't a given.

    hard to see any other teams willing to try and fit him into the cap, and give up quality assets for.

    i think Henrique + a quality asset (high pick or top prospect) might be another option worth looking at... cap hit/salary is almost the same, and Henrique plays a game that would fit in nicely to our top-9. He went to WC this summer and played well for team canada, suspect he's a guy itching to get his career back on track and could bring a lot of value even though he's had a rough 2 years in Anaheim.

    Just keep Drouin if you can’t get anything for him. A playmaking LW is what we need more than anything and if his head is on straight, he could be the player he always had the potential to be.

    I would be willing to keep him but he probably wants out of Montreal... That's the key factor here.

    I don't see him coming back in a habs jersey.. ever..

    I don't think that we can get Tolvanen out of Nashville, without at least eating salary and maybe adding ourselves. Tolvanen was starting to perform. Particularly torrid from March to April.

    I would try Nolan Patrick+, if he's healthy. He too is a buy-low opportunity, just like Drouin.

    Id do it for Dunn to be honest a need for us on the left side , young , can play offensively , good skate. Should have been a target for Bergevin at this deadline.

    No need of Tolvanen, similar to Caufield

    Man I’d love a Cam Fowler on this team. I don’t know what it would take to get him. I’d think at least a 1st round pick + prospect + roster player

    1st round pick + Poehling + Lehkonen/Armia signed ?

    1st round pick 2021 + Poehling + Harris + a cap dump would make it work IMO

    He has a very limited NTC and apparently doesn’t want to play in Canada (I don’t have a link but I remember reading this).

    We’ve done well by him. Maybe he can be pissed at media, but the org has given him everything he could ask for and more.

    Its not just the media, its the fanbase too. But he was never in a position to succeed in Montreal because he was acquired to be an impact forward (and started playing center) and there was ample evidence that he was never going to be that.

    I was thinking that if Danault walks....we should make a play Patrick. I'd hesitate dumping Drouin for him because Tatar is likely gone too.

    To Philly - 2nd 2021 and 3rd 2022
    To Habs - Nolan Patrick

    Toffoli - Suzuki - Caufield
    Drouin - KK - Anderson
    Evans - Patrick - Gally
    Lehk - Poehling - Armia/Perry

    Time to call up Poehling

    Perry can move up and down the lineup if needed.

    Evans can shift to centre if needed.

    Tons of flexibility here.

    My first choice is still to resign Danault

    My wishlist:

    1. Chariot + pick + prospect <-> Seattle

    2. Sign Hyman (not likely) or Schwartz

    3. Drouin (cap dump) + Harris + 1st round pick 2021 <-> Severson + Wood


    Toffoli - Suzuki - Caufield
    Schwartz - KK - Anderson
    Wood- Danault - Gallagher
    Armia - Evans - Perry
    *Extra: Lekhonen

    Edmundson - Petry
    Romanov - Weber
    Kulak - Severson

    Price
    Allen

    His value definitely took a major hit. I would love him here.

    X-Eichel-Anderson
    Toffoli-Suzuki-Caufield

    Going forward looks very good. I've got no clue how much he would cost, maybe something like Kotkaniemi+Guhle+1st+Drouin? It doesn't seem like much for a player of Eichel's calibre (in fact, it likely isn't), but I don't think he will net a giant return like he would have last year.

    That being said, I think other teams could also offer some offers of that value.
