I know some of you will find this crude and mean, but if you're a player in the NHL, you can't be a mental midget like Drouin. Sorry, this is a cut-throat business and no matter how good you are, if you aren't interested in playing hockey, whether because it's mentally difficult or you just have mental health problems, you're in the wrong line of work. He already quit on the team during their Stanley Cup run because of mental health. I'm not belittling him for it, he needed help and got it.

I'm still hoping Drouin will get his act somewhat together and we could fetch something in return for him, but I don't think it's likely.
Of course you want to try to help players with any health concerns they have, be it physical or mental. But yeah, ultimately, if the ailment can't be corrected, then you have to move on at some point. Whether it's Price, or Drouin.

100% agreed

I have no issue with a player getting help for any issue

This is a business and all parts have to be on the same page

Drouin's biggest problem is that he's a lazy fuck who couldn't understand why things at the NHL level didn't come easy the way they did in junior. He wasn't willing to put in the work and preferred to pout and look for other things to blame for what is, essentially, a lack of character. If he's looking for sympathy I suggest he consult a dictionary. He'll find sympathy right in between "shit" and "syphilis".
