Absolutely genius also Edm ads a 2d to makeup the big gap!

Not terrible but idk. I think Edm would have to retain 1 million of contract to make it fair.

Lol. What gap? Drouin 10 goals 33 points in 62 games.
Nuge 17 goals 33 points in 49 games. Nuge has more goals and the same amount of points 15 less games. Montreal adds a pick and retains on Drouin to makeup the gap if anything.

Explain why oilers add or retain $1 m. What has Drouin done that is so special?

5.) 11 Mar 2018

10 Mar 2018 23:54:57
honestly, the proposed deal is pretty fair tbh. I just can't see montreal doing it. fans woukd riot if Sergachev was turned into RNH, and the Drouin plan was called off not even a season into its existence.

11 Mar 2018 00:12:01
Lol never happening.

9.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 00:20:04
Lol RNH is 24 JDrouin is 22 (Also playing a new position)
You are ******* delusionnal if you think you can get this guy for a 1st overall bust
Ah theses Oilers fan say habs should retain just to make them so legit but they know they can’t get Jonathan Drouin unless they offer Draisaitl or McDavid or Puljijaarvi which either way it’s never going to happen
Forget J. Drouin oil fans he ain’t going nowhere.

10.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 01:25:23
Mtl would definitely add, rnh is clearly the better player. drouin is far worse defensively and rnh plays a shutdown role against other teams top lines, don't be a mad mtl fan just cause they got hosed in the drouin trade.

No he doesn't wth.

Wtf is this Chiarelli brain washing operation.

13.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 06:02:15
It’s a pretty fair trade considering positional needs. However, I think the Oilers should try RNH at LW like they’ve been talking about. Then you have a legit Center in case of injury to McDavid or Draisaitl. You can never have too many centers.

14.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 06:45:44
Which is what they did tonight Leafs17. Goal and an assist on the wing. He can play both positions well, unlike Drouin. The stats do not lie. Look at the points in games played this season.

15.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 08:18:05
The trade is to some point fair, but a habs fan said that oilers need to add and retain salary. As an oilers fan, I asked for you to explain why. No swearing and cussing. Just explain. Give me stats, give me minutes logged, give me their offensive and defensive roles for each and then compare. Plus, 2 years of age difference is not chattering! RNH is a centreman and plays all roles and his numbers are a little better. I like Drouin. He is talented. But if a trade happened, it is swapping. That’s all.
Plus, how is RNH a bust? Whoever called him that, again explain. Ranting and cussing are silly and childish. Be a man and give a real answer.

16.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 09:59:07
More points, goals, far superior two way player, Nuge is one of our best Penalty killers, most consistent player and our 3rd forward, would not like this trade.

17.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 14:09:42
For a first overall he's in the category of not so good ones. You draft a center first overall because you have no doubt he will be a nunber one center. Same with Hishier even Patrick does guy weren't drated 1 and 2 overal to be second liners. So if they do bcome second liners they're a bust compare to what the potential was. RNH= bust Yakupov=Total bust

Oilers fan come at me all you want but at the end of the day you just can't argue that Chirelli drafted both Yakupov and Hopkins to be top line cpntributors wich they are NOT. One is really not he's gone, and the other is not a total bust becauze he is an incredible third line center and a good second line center. But teams expect to draft these kinna guys later in the first round. Therye not satisfied with getting a second line center first overall= bust. he's my point.

18.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 16:51:26
At his full potential, Drouin is a good enough 1st line guy
While Nuggets will never be better than top 6 unless if he’s on a bad team.

19.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 16:54:13
OMG Bergevin is not trading Drouin so please enough.

20.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 17:07:06
Rnh is better in some ways drouin is better in others. Most hab fans would rather drouin most oiler fans would rather rnh. no sense talking about it anymore lol.

21.) 11 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 17:34:59
You’re right colt. No one can argue that Chiarelli drafted both RNH and yakupov to be top Centers. It’s really hard to argue that. But here’s a lame attempt at it

1. Chiarelli never drafted either of them. They were drafted 3 and 4 years before he showed up.

2. Yakupov is and was a winger. In fact in junior, alex galchenyuk was his centreman, you know him right? The guy drafted 2 spots behind him who can’t handle centre either?!

In conclusion Chiarelli did not draft either of these guys to be top centres. Thank you for hearing out a terrible argument honourable Allain Cote!

11 Mar 2018 20:47:44
This is just hilarious. The arguments are "he's 2 years you get and oh his potential is better! " Lmao. Great arguments guys! Can't show any stats what so ever because they all prove Nuge IS the better player.

LOL and then ya try saying dumb rubbish about busts and don't even know which GM drafted them. This has been one of the more entertaining threads in a while.

26.) 12 Mar 2018
11 Mar 2018 21:13:57
I wouldn’t give up Drouin in million years.

Drouin 128P in 227GP 0.56 PPG
Nuge 300P in 445GP. 0.68 PPG

Drouins stats were better last year yup.

But I can always find an argument lol.

30.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 00:16:44
Habby, What is it that Drouin does better? As you say they both do some things better than the other.
This years and careers stats show Nuge is the better offensive guy. We all know Nuge is the better defensive player. The better center. The better penalty killer.
I haven't looked up the career power play stats.
Drouin is better at speaking French? That's legit. Can some of you Habs fans come up with any stats to back up this huge gap you think Drouin is better than Nuge? Didn't think so.

31.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 00:35:08
All of this is moot. Drouin shouldn't have been at center in the first place.

32.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 01:04:24
Hahahaha did you really just compare me to whoever that is are you kidding me 😂 please just stop you’ve embarrassed yourself enough on one post yikes man.

33.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 12:37:14
Nuge is better across the board. For positional needs, oilers might have to give up the better player for the needed position, if they’re that desperate for a winger for mcdavid. But saying drouin is better is dumb lol this season, last season and the one before that says RNH is better and he’s never went home because he didn’t get his way, and plays the harder position. I shouldn’t have said that because now Habby will tell me I’m picking on Drouin because he’s a hab, but really his own stat lines pick in him, I just second that.

34.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 12:51:16
Drouins a talented kid, no one can deny that. But this immunity he gets is insane lol habs fans have been known to be tough on player that underperform, it’s a tough place to play when things aren’t going well, but with the passion and excitement it’s a great place to play when you’re winning. That’s the two sides.

Now patches goes a cpl weeks without scoring and you hear the fans and media all over him even if he’s lead the team in scoring for years. Price struggles and it doesn’t matter that he’s been the best goalie in the world and basically the only reason you have had any success in 5 years, and the best player in any position to play there since they booed Patrick Roy outta town, he gets the Bronx cheers and fans want him gone.

But drouin, who they trade a really good piece for and have huge expectations for, massively under performs, and it’s just excuses made for him. He’s young, new position, not great talent to play with etc. Phil kessel was virtually the identical situation coming to Toronto at 21 years old, if he has 10 goals instead of his 35 or whatever, him and the GM would have been roasted. But because Drouins born in Quebec and speaks French instead of born in Connecticut or BC like patches and price, he’s untouchable.

Geez jim you really take it to heart when hab fans want there team to keep one of there players. Does it really bother you that much lol.

36.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 14:47:59
Jim we could bring up 50 comparisons like this across the league. i mean I could say zaitsev is better then jordie benn but he really hasn't shown it this year. I'm not arguing whether or not drouin is better. i'd just rather keep him ATM then to trade him for nuge.

37.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 15:27:32
This is becoming a big argument.

38.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 15:29:05
But Drouin is more offensive even if he only has 35 pts
What happens when you pass from Kuch to Every player on habs team.

39.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 15:38:31
More offensive? What the heck are you talking about. The stats clearly say Nuge is more offensive. Look at this year and career stats. Do I have to tell them to you again?
Nuge has more point and goals this year in 15 less games.
Nuge has a career .68 PPG and Drouin has .56 PPG.
Stats do not lie. Nuge is a better offensive player. Fact. Like wtf.
There is no arguing stats, they are legit facts not opinion. So funny.

40.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 19:59:41
Nuge is not a better offensive player no matter what the stats are. Youll see Drouin will get 70 points next year and youll see.

41.) 12 Mar 2018
12 Mar 2018 21:18:20
At the moment Nuge is better than Drouin. Don't bring age into it because you just sound stupid. Age doesn't mean a damn thing. The ability to compete and contribute does. I realize it's his first year playing center, but that's what it has come to when Galchenyuk is incapable of playing center at the NHL level.

42.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 09:00:16
Habby, I never said you shouldn’t keep him. In fact if you read what I said, i wrote that since oilers seem to really need a scoring winger they might have to pay a premium to get it. Meaning I think RNH is the better player, but the trade isn’t bad at all because oilers need a Drouin more than Habs need RNH right now.

The other part was just saying how Habs management, fans and media seem to have too much patience based on the language a player speaks or which province he’s born in. No other team would sacrifice a better on ice fit or option for that nonsense. They refuse to get the best players or coaches because of it.

They would rather convert a winger put him in a position he’s going to have a tough time succeeding in, just because there were no francophone centres available at that moment. Outrageous in 2018 to not give the best person for the position the job.

43.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 14:04:58
Rn Oilers argument is that RNH is better defensively
Hahaha what a joke.

44.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 14:33:34
Keyhabs, Can you read? Nuges offensive stats are a lot better than Drouins, career and this year. He's better offensively. That's a fact. He is also better defensively, that's a fact as well. Penalty killing, defensive two way play. The only thing that Drouin is better at, is speaking French.
I think my arguments have been a lot more than just "Nuge is better defensively". Stats don't lie.
You're argument is age and potential. Now that's a joke.

45.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 17:25:25
Drouin is way better defensively. it’s called a bad season
No matter any pooler would bet Drouin is going to do more points than RNH next year.

46.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 17:39:52
@yup. You’re Right. It’s the French thing. Everyone loves a hometown kid story. I like the fact that Connor brown and zach hyman are Toronto kids. And I’m sure oilers fans like local kids playing on the team. But no one but habs seem to actually sacrifice the better player to make it happen. It’s an added bonus, not the way to judge talent.

47.) 13 Mar 2018
13 Mar 2018 18:18:01
"Way better defensively". You just lost any bit of credibility you had left with that one Keyhabs.

He's better at speaking French and that's the only thing.
Even if he does have more points next year, The career stats PPG will still have Nuge as the better player. What a joke. "He'll have a better year next year! " "His potential is better" "he's two years younger" Your arguments are laughable.

48.) 14 Mar 2018
14 Mar 2018 00:29:25
Lol I meant offensively
He’s got to more skills than RNH for sure.

49.) 14 Mar 2018
14 Mar 2018 18:20:45
If that was true, He would have better offensive numbers. The stats don't lie. Nuge is a better offensive player this year and career. That's a fact.
You're a biased homer. Lol.
