On July 1, we learned that Jonathan Drouin was leaving for Colorado. While the news wasn't too surprising, it was an emotional moment to leave Montreal after six years with the Canadiens.

Despite the emotion, Jo is happy to have a fresh start.
"A few days before [the market opened], we made the decision not to return to the Habs. Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton were super nice to me, but I needed a fresh start. Montreal has been difficult over the last few years. I've been through a lot of ups and downs. I needed a fresh start somewhere else."

His comments confirm what Kent Hughes was saying about two weeks ago, that a decision hadn't yet been made in Drouin's case.
Despite the fact that a fresh start would do him a world of good, Jo is still super happy to have played for the Habs and would recommend Quebecers to play for the Sainte-Flanelle without hesitation.
He even took the liberty of making a jab at Marc Bergevin and the former administration in the process.
I've had some great times in Montreal, and it's not all bad. I've met some great people and grown as a person."

"I would never tell a Quebecer not to go to Montreal. Even after six years, I still got butterflies when I jumped on the ice at the Bell Centre. These are things that will never change. The passion of the fans will always be there. Yes, there's pressure, but if you can handle it, it's a great place to be. Especially now, with the staff in place. It's going to be a super good team in the future."

In any case, we can now turn the page and officially wish Jonathan success in Colorado and, above all, fun!
