Quote from: New_Earth_Mud on January 21, 2016, 01:35:57 AMYzerman has lost any advantage in this.Any goal of moving this player for something has failed on him. He now gets nothing. He will now have to take less just to keep face.Islanders may finfd them self in this same position. Id trade them Postma and Chiarot for Ham.
Quote from: True Blue on January 21, 2016, 02:12:11 AMI don't see the Islanders trading any of their defensemen considering the injuries they have.
Quote from: Colton on January 21, 2016, 03:13:51 AMYzerman didn't have any advantage in the St. Louis trade and still fleeced NY in that deal. He's done nothing wrong in this situation either. He has no obligation to trade Drouin whatsoever.Maybe he'll ship him over to Colorado so MacKinnon can fool everyone into thinking he is a competent hockey player for a second time.

Quote from: blue_gold_84 on January 21, 2016, 06:11:16 PMThis. Yzerman and the Lightning aren't at fault for any of this, IMO.Drouin seems to have somewhat of a prima donna attitude and his jerk store of an agent is only throwing fuel on the fire with this public statements calling out the Lightning. This is a lose-lose for Drouin.
Quote from: New_Earth_Mud on January 22, 2016, 01:06:56 AMSomewhat agree.Its become a cluster ... now.I still think if Yzerman pulled the trigger and got it done at first hed have got more then he will now.Drouin has sabotaged any deal in all ways. He looks bad now and team may not want him.Hes still a young good player. His potential is big.
Quote from: Colton on January 22, 2016, 02:09:55 AMIt's been a cluster for about a year now, it's just far more public than it had been in the past. Many people have been privy to Drouin's terrible attitude since his time in Halifax, for sure all 30 GM's have known about it too.If anything this whole thing helps Yzerman. The more Drouin plays at a professional level the more his stock is going to drop. He is absurdly overvalued right now. His potential was big about 3 years ago, I think most have discovered that all it was, was potential. Most teams gunning for him appear to be doing so with an attitude that they can fix him more so than they are getting anything of quality right now.
Quote from: GOLDMEMBER on January 21, 2016, 09:55:30 PMi can't see him being a Bonifide NHLer now!But he has a case when a guy like Stamkos won't resign.... Yet. Something weird is happening with Stevie Y and the bolts???
