The 2021-22 season has been extremely difficult for the players of the Montreal Canadiens.
Among those who are not unanimous, you find forward Jonathan Drouin.
The Quebecer was limited to only 34 games due to injuries and he amassed 20 points.
There is one last season left on Jonathan Drouin’s contract at $5,500,000 and he is in serious danger of leaving Montreal.
Blain Potvin, from the website The Hockey Writersproposes an interesting transaction involving Drouin.
He would send Jonathan Drouin, Mathias Norlinder as well as a 2nd round pick against forward Anthony Beauvillier of the New York Islanders.
Beauvillier also had a very difficult 2021-22 season when he was even scratched from training by Barry Trotz.
In 75 games, he amassed 34 points, including 12 goals.
Considering that there are two seasons left at $4,150,000 per year on Anthony Beauvillier’s contract and that he is almost two years younger than Drouin, it is certain that the Habs could not send their forward in a trade. one on one.
However, I like the idea of this transaction proposal even if it is perhaps a bit expensive. We make up the difference by sending Drouin with a 2nd round pick and an interesting back in Mathias Norlinder.
