St. James: Red Wings should look into Drouin trade
An intriguing situation has developed in Tampa Bay, one that should interest the Detroit Red Wings.
Jonathan Drouin, a top-three draft pick, wants out, and it’s worth it for the Wings to see whether they could land him.
The issue has come to light as Drouin’s agent, Allan Walsh, issued a statement to several media outlets revealing that a trade had been requested in November, spurred by an apparently unhappy situation with the Lightning organization. Walsh noted: “We have not said one word about this untenable situation publicly. … It’s in everyone’s best interests that Jonathan be allowed to move on and play hockey.”
