Tampa Bay Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin has been suspended indefinitely without pay by the team after his failure to report for tonight’s game between the Syracuse Crunch and the Toronto Marlies, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced this evening. The team will make no further comment at this time.
Hell of a talent, but I don't know if this guy is making good decisions here.

Definite red flags when you're on an EL and requesting trades.

Another case of a high draft pick that hasn't proven anything making demands he really shouldn't. Shut up and prove you can play.

That agent sounds like a douche.

Isn't that the point of having an agent?

If he were only requesting, I don't think it would be a huge red flag, but this guy made his first trade request barely 1 year into his ELC and, about halfway through his ELC, is demanding a trade to the point where he refuses to play.

The whole point of ELCs and RFAs was so players pay their dues before they earn more money and rights (to prevent what was happening in the NFL, where rookies were making ridiculous demands before they ever played a pro game).

Doesn't sound like Drouin wants to pay his dues

theres likely some shit going on behind the scenes that we don't know about.

im also getting the feeling that yzerman is a tough guy to work with.

If Drouin is anything like CoHo, everyone needs to stay far away.

Agreed. Stamkos = case in point.

Not sure what to make of Drouin or what the cost will be at this point.

Gonna be a high risk high reward for his next team. If they gamble on him and give him the time of day he wants and it pays off, they've got a bonafide superstar in the making.

What point? He'll be huge money 10M+, max term 8 years, no movement clause. He may be worth that now, but what about in 3-4 years? They could arguably bring in 2 players at that cap hit who will have a bigger combined impact than stamkos will on his own, and for a longer amount of time too.

Don't get how these trade demands work for rookies.... so suppose Tampa decides not to trade him and he continues not reporting to AHL, then he won't have honoured a year of his ELC and it gets extended another year? Or does the ELC expire regardless of whether he plays or not?

I know under the last CBA, the team could choose to "tow" the contract if the player refused to report (i.e. when Nabokov came back from Russia and the Islanders picked him up on waivers, he refused to report and NYI threatened to have his contract "towed" to next season).

Not sure if that changed in 2013.

i think the reason drouin refused to play the AHL game was because his agent told him not to play and because maybe they had a deal in place and he didnt want to risk getting injured my 2cents...

He doesn't serve a purpose, hence him riding pine tonight.
I can almost guarantee he ends up back in MTL.

Well his agent is dumb as shit.

Drouin was only on the roster for 37-38 games this year. That means it won't count towards his UFA count if he continues to be suspended. Stevie Y has all the leverage.

Everyone saying that prust is done as a Canuck after that ranger game

Really hope a sober Kas lights it up in Edmonton to show scared Linden he made a huge mistake and got peanuts in return

Kid is dumb as shit too. How many fucking games have you played? How many goals scored?

One highlight reel goal doesn't mean you're a top 6 foward on an NHL team.

Same shit with coho...omg...that slap shot goal against the Bruins!!! look at that!!! That shit I keep hearing on 1040 back then..look at him now. lol

Prust was done a long time ago.
He is too slow to play decent minutes in this league.

Really, his only job in this league is to fight and even then he didn't fight Shawn Thornton that night so what good is he?
