    I have one question. Montreal traded PK Subban for Shea Weber because Subban's flashy offense and often polarizing personality didn't fit with the "culture" Bergevin was trying to create in Montreal. But now he trades a talented defenseman with upside for a flashy, offensive player with moral and attitude issues?

    Don't get me wrong, Drouin is a helluva player and he will be a fantastic hockey player for the rest of his career, but I just didn't think he fit the narrative of the Montreal Canadiens.

    This is all happening because Marc Bergevin is what you get when you give Jim Benning some actual big chips to play with.

    BAHAHAA, Im telling you Mark Bergevin is doing anything to save his job. "PLEASE CAREY DON'T LEAVE, LOOK I JUST TRADED FOR DROUIN". Good trade for MTL, Drouin is from Quebec and will get all the Ice time he wants. Tampa Bay is the new team Russia, YZERMAN still remembers what Federov and Datsyuk did for Detroit.

    Sergachev is good, but Drouin will be elite. Tampa Bay will come out of this trade in a few years looking back and scratching their heads.

    I know Plus Minus can be a wonky stat, but Drouin doesn't play defensively. He's fortunate to have Weber and Price keeping the puck out of the net but with the game no longer has a place for one dimensional players. That'll have to improve with him espically if he's to move to center. Need big wins in your own zone, and if you don't you can't be caught fumbling with yourself and doubly so now he's in a Canadian market.

    I get that Drouin is not a defensive player but with Carey Price on the team you need OFFENCE. Drouin will be a powerhouse player on the PP if he plays to his potential. If MTL can score 3 goals a game they are looking good and Drouin will help score more goals than Sergachev will.

    Montreal is ******* ********. "Ehh, our problems are center depth, and defense. So lets trade a defender for a winger." Listen, the "Carey Price is our defense" tactic doesn't work. It gets you the playoffs, then when you play a 7 game series with that, it'll slap you in the face. Bad trade for Montreal.

    Completely agree. You don't trade your best defensive prospect for a winger when you're the Canadiens. It reminds me of the Taylor Hall trade a little bit. A team with great goaltending but no defense trades a good, young defenseman for a talented winger. Sure Hall and Drouin are good, but it's not what they need most.

    I think this is a great trade for Montreal. Drouin is from Quebec and will get all the icetime he wants. I think giving up sergachev was a bit of a risk but I guess you gotta give up quality for quality in return.

    Great trade for Montreal. Drouin will be an elite forward, he's already an extraordinary player. Sergachev is a top prospect but he's yet to be an NHL player. We don't know if he is going to be elite or even an NHL player... Don't get me wrong, he has the potential to be an outstanding top 2 defenseman but anybody can be a bust even a first overall pick like Yakupov. In my opinion, Montreal wins the deal for now because of that.

    Wouldn't Price want a great d-man instead of a forward?
