The Drouin comment was an afterthought. With or without him, this team doesn't need a 40-50 pt winger. Not with Landy, McGinn, PAP, Jones, Downie, and any UFA's or prospects/draft picks that make their way into the lineup in the next few years.

What they don't have anywhere on the horizon except for some potential with Barrie and Elliott is a proven offensive defenseman. They'll have to overpay to get one as a UFA, and have trouble developing them. Wingers on the other hand, this team has done very well finding for reasonable deals in trade, or as UFA's like PAP.
