    Drouin can be disappointing relative to what we expect from a player with his natural talent and his contract, and also still be worth keeping in the lineup and not a healthy scratch. 


    Despite the lack of goals, he still leads the team in assists, has good underlying numbers, and creates offensive opportunities every game. 


    Is it what everyone wants from him? No, we need more.


    Is it better to keep Paul Byron or Arturri Lehkonen in the lineup ahead of him?  No, its not.

    Right on. This team needs to graduate from good to great.

    The only relevant bonuses for Caufield is a prorated $25,000 for 7 games played.  There are some other bonuses that will be hit though - I actually wrote about it yesterday if you're interested in the numbers.  https://www.habsworld.net/2021/04/montreals-bonus-situation/


    Whether Caufield comes up or they trade for a replacement and put him in Gallagher's spot, there is still going to be a bonus penalty from Suzuki and Romanov if they go to LTIR.


    It's the same dilemma they faced with Chiarot and LTIR (he was eligible since he'd miss 10 games/24 days), a decision they opted not to take to preserve their minimal remaining cap room.  A lot will depend on how long Gallagher is out - if it's a 4-6 week thing where he could return by the end of the season, that would stop them from trading for a higher-priced replacement.  But even a recall of Caufield (heck, even Evans at this point) would require LTIR and would eat in to their cap space, creating the bonus overage.

    Thumbs are tricky. If broken, 4-6 weeks minimum. Could be up to 8 depending on details.

    I believe McDavid and Draisatl are going to shred our defence.  The 3rd pairing isn’t good enough to consider containing them.  The other 2 pairs, especially Weber and Edmundson, will get obliterated by their speed.


    I want to be an optimist about this series, so if the Habs can contain McDavid and Draisatl, and can score more than 2 goals, they have a good chance at winning.  

    All hail Petry and Kulak. Once you shut down the usual suspects, YEG is a house of cards.
