Jonathan Drouin to be traded by Friday?

Published February 28, 2023 at 10:37

It was not the honeymoon that Jonathan Drouin had hoped for in Montreal. Marc Bergevin paid a lot of money to get his services and despite two honest first seasons with the club, the Quebecer has had multiple injuries and absences in recent years.

He is now in the last year of his contract, after which he will be a free agent without compensation. It would be very surprising, if not impossible, that number 27 would stay in Montreal. That's why Kent Hughes would actively try to trade him by Friday.

The price to pay will not be very high, but as long as we lose him for nothing, it is better to let him express himself elsewhere. According to TVA Sports, being the center of the second line for tonight's game is a way to showcase him.

We all know how talented Jo is and a team like the Avalanche could certainly be interested in his services. Bringing him back with Nathan MacKinnon would make sense, as both were very successful in Halifax in junior.

We'll see by Friday what happens to him...
