    Drouin takes 24 games off a year regardless of if he’s injured.. joking aside. I’ve been super critical of him but I was happy with his play and effort this season so far for the most part. If he had kept it up and finally figured it out, this is a crappy loss for us right now. As far as Byron, it was so obvious something was seriously wrong. This team goes as far as Petry and Price take them now.

    What difference does speed make if you can't make use of it? Byron has been lost all year out there, very poor decisions and positioning. He's probably done in Montreal, except for a limited role on the special team perhaps. Pretty expensive price tag for his output and contributions.

    It's 8 week. It's still an option if we're talking depth for depth.

    They said 3rd period of Caps. He did make a big hit in the 3rd along the boards in the offensive end late in the game. I wonder if he jammed his wrist on the hit injuring it.

    Let's see after his surgery... not sure why we need to be so definitive all the time.

    Hahaha... sorry, got to admit that first sentence was funny. I have been very complimentary all season to Drouin, even after getting sucked into the Domi black hole. Even accounting for the US Thanksgiving, Christmas and All-Star breaks, 2 months is a long time. Gonna take him at least a dozen games after to get back into mid-season form.

    Edit: I see @Milhouse40 did the math and got 28 games. I still think it’s reasonable to add another 8-12 for timing and conditioning.

    Byron, though they say he was hurt this past week, I wonder if this has been a longer injury? I know he’s had no offense at all this season, but it did look like he lost a step this season.

    I think its because all our fears come true with this club. Small players get injured often on this franchise, and when your team is based on small players, it just a matter of 'when'. There is nobody to insulate any of the core players. Suzuki will be next, he's a moving target out there.

    This team is one injury away from collapsing up front. If Gallagher or Tatar drop out for any extent, this team is going down hard.

    Per Lavoie quoting Molson, JD will be out 6 to 8 weeks, Byron 4 to 6 weeks. Could have been worse. I am hoping Weal, who looked much better of late, could return to his last year form and help compensate the loss of JD. As for Byron, Poehling or maybe Vejdemo can fill the role, not a big loss considering how he played this year.

    Drouin should be back at the end of January.
    8 weeks from now will be on January 14th. Then give it a few days for practice/conditioning.

    There are no games between January 18th to January 27th. Which makes it perfect to practice to get back into gameshape.

    So my guess Is Drouin will be back on Januray 27th.

    Which odly enough is a game agains't Washington again.​

    Good news is that Bergevin will not need to trade at the TDL since getting Drou Drou and Byron back will be like acquiring a new player.

    That's Habs bi-week. No team practices.

    But, yes, I expect the Washington game on January 27th or that week is when he returns.

    Doesn't sound like Byron's knee issue is too serious. He's expected to be out 4 weeks.

    I didn't feel like he was skating all that well this year. Had no speed bursts. Couldn't out race guys to pucks.

    It's probably the injury he sat out a bit of training camp for.

    Best to deal with it now.

    I expect he'll be back either after Christmas for the Florida trip. Or just before on the Western trip. He probably comes on that trip to skate and train with team.

    Drouin out long term is going to hurt. He was playing well and a consistent threat offensively. Habs will struggle to replace what he was bringing.

    It's an opportunity to give Suzuki and Kotkaniemi more of a look playing in Drouin's role. Let one or both of these guys have a shot at a primary offensive weapon. They were drafted for it, and from what we have seen they have the talent for it. You never know what could happen. I mean really, would they do worse than Armia or Lehkonen or whoever else they'd promote?

    Better yet, give Domi his spot, and let Suzuki or KK have Domi's spot.
