Jonathan Drouin Montreal Canadiens lineup season?

JONATHAN DROUIN OUT OF THE MONTREAL CANADIENS LINEUP NEXT SEASON?

JUN 22, 2022  (0H22)      JEFF DROUIN
For the past few weeks, as you may have noticed, there have been many rumours about many Montreal Canadiens players.

This should come as no surprise. After all, this is the first off-season of a brand new management in Montreal, and the new bosses (Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton) will want to quickly get the team in their image.

In addition, we are talking about an organization that wants to rebuild a young team and wants to trade big contracts, Kent Hughes has been very clear and transparent on this point.

So we have a perfect recipe for a very eventful summer, with several personnel moves.

Names such as Jeff Petry, Mike Hoffman and Shea Weber have come up a lot in trade rumors (due to their age and contractual situation)

Weber is now gone. Will Hoffman and Petry be next? It's definitely possible:


On the other hand, another name could be added to those who played their last game in a Montreal Canadiens uniform, as reported by GoHabsGo.com.

"It's no secret that Jonathan Drouin's future with the Canadiens is more uncertain than ever. The 27-year-old forward was limited to just 34 games last season, and since arriving with the CH, the latter has never been able to find his wandering." - GHG

To add a lot of fuel to the fire, insider Maxim Guerin, who seems to have very good sources, advances this:

"I'm not the first to report the news but based on what I'm told left and right, it would surprise me if Jo Drouin plays with the CH next season, more whispers than anything else but this summer it might come out louder." - Maxim Guerin

It's up to you to judge the credibility of this information, but we wanted to share it with you because indeed, he is not the first to report the info.

Are Jonathan Drouin's days with the CH numbered? It seems to be the case and we will be watching this closely.

One thing is for sure, personally, we think it could be ideal for Jo. The guy is clearly talented, but excessively unlucky and has never been able to really take off with the CH.

Imagine if he was traded to a club like the Colorado Avalanche or the Florida Panthers! It could be desirable for him and he's only 27 (that's the age of Valeri Nichushkin, who finally found a good fit in the NHL and is becoming an all-star player).

It's possible that the famous fit between Drouin and Montreal just isn't the right one, and it's no more serious than that.

If you were in Kent Hughes' shoes, would you trade Drouin? For what?
