So not having the same explosion as a guy like Yakupov = lazy? I'm not trying to attack your judgment, I'm just trying to understand your point.

MacKinnon's invite (and making the team in general) is all but a guarantee, but with this play, Drouin is sure to get an invite... I wish HC would open up more to 17yo's as I think having these two on a line would make Canada's second line deadly.

That's not defending my favorite player... He's just been much faster this season...
if I say he is slow can you pay me $7.95 to watch him play also?

Do you mean it though?

And I don't think I can pay $7.95 for that awful feed for anyone.

November 9th vs. Gatineau.

Fun facts - Mooseheads only loss this season was an embaraasing home opener 6-1 to these same Gatineau Olympiques.
The last time the Moose were on Sportsnet we lost 9-0 to Rimouski in Game 5 of the semis. the time before that we lost 7-3 to Chicoutimi.

All the odds are against us lol

If they don't someone needs that good old 14. They have the chemistry to dominate there and i think their game fits on international size rink.

The guy keeps on impressing... Drouin keeps on putting up pts at an unbelievable rate and I keep making the same comment; HC has to keep these two together for the WJHC, especially if HC is serious about not pursuing RNH's release from the AHL.

I agree with bias as a season tix holder for the Moose but I can`t stand the "experience" arguement when it comes to the WJHC`s. I get it when the kid is 16, when 17, he should be all but good to go and there is absolutely no way Drouin, based on talent, should be left off a TC, truth is, it always comes down to the approach and system of whomever is behind the bench.

I`ll be honest, if I were coaching (and I`m about to present a reason why I could never be coach), I`d pick one checking line (4th line) and 3 lines of offensive kids and let em go, have fun, do what you do best. I get when an offensive player is asked to take on a different role, and the problem is the pressure the media/fans place on anything Team Canada that it`s a win or it`s failure situation. One year, I`d just love a coach to come in, say up front, were going to play fun, firewagon hockey, try and fill the opponents net and let the chips fall where they may

I'm not a Wings fan but man would he rock one of those, a Habs jersey suits him... Duclair too..


I could see him in a Rangers shirt... Not the Isles though...

Ugly in the Oilers... Even worse in a Jacket..

IMO he'll make the WJC team.

"Sexiest" combo of jersey + the player? I dunno lol.

If we're talking about what jersey he'd look best in, the Sabres come to mind... I can see him setting up Grigo and Vanek 50 times a year

i would love for the flames to acquire another 1st and draft barkov/monahan and then Drouin. Having a future top line with sven and two of those would be unreal.

The Islanders have actually had a 'Drouin' in their history, Jude Drouin, and he was about the same size as Jonathan.

You know what they say, history repeats itself. They brought back Gillies, afterall, why not Drouin!

Outside of the top 3, (Mackinnon, Barkov, Jones) I think I'm leaning towards Drouin as my favorite for the JETS. At the moment, he narrowly edges out Monahan, Lindholm and Lazar.

For what it's worth, Drouin would look DYNAMITE in JETS blue.

I agree, but I hope he gets a chance to go head to head with Barkov, because I think based on what happens at the WJHC (if he plays) will determine if he goes top 3. Because at this point, I think he's got a legit shot at going number 3.
