Film And Analysis: How The Avalanche Can Best Utilize Jonathan Drouin (+)



Avalanche Drouin

Perhaps no one the Colorado Avalanche brought in this summer comes with more intrigue than Jonathan Drouin.

He’s not their most important acquisition, but his history with Nathan MacKinnon has fans dreaming of the good old days.

So with Drouin arriving, I decided to watch some of his games from last year. A lot of them.

8 games and 139 shifts, to be exact. And let me tell you, the Montreal Canadiens were not an easy team to watch.

These viewings showed both the good and the bad of Drouin’s game. The end result is 28 clips (and a lot of words) that showcase both where Drouin can help the Avalanche, and why this is far from a slam-dunk signing.

We’ll start with the good, get to the not-so-good, and end with my analysis of how I think Drouin can be best utilized in an Avalanche uniform.
