I don’t know if Jared Bednar’s plan is to reunite them at the start of the season, but everyone will agree that the idea makes sense.
The experiment is worth trying… And if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work.
That said, by doing things the right way, Drouin can really revive his career. No, the last few years haven’t been easy for him in Montreal, and everyone knows it. Even he knows it.
All in all, it’s hard to predict his offensive production for next season, because we don’t know how he’ll adapt to his new club’s style of play. If he’s used in the right way, I don’t see why he’ll have a difficult season in terms of points, because Colorado has talented players.
At this level, on the Mise-o-jeuwebsite… Sports betting fans can bet on him finishing the season with more points than Kirby Dach and Alexis Lafrenière.

Does that mean Drouin “is better” than the other two players named above?
Of course not, because it’s not the points that lead to a conclusion like this.
But the 2.40 rating is intriguing nonetheless. Drouin has the potential to collect (at least) 50 points if he plays on the Avalanche’s talented powerplay, and if he’s paired with MacKinnon and the chemistry kicks in, the points will start piling up all by themselves.
In the end, it depends on how Lafrenière is used in New York… And it depends on how Kirby Dach progresses in Montreal.
I’ve never made a bet in my life, and I don’t intend to either. But, if I had an old $2 to put down… I don’t think I’d hesitate before jumping on odds like that, especially given Drouin’s new entourage with the Avalanche.
– He’s become my favorite player.
