    Default Drouin or Vrana?

    Thinking of a Drouin - Vrana swap, should I?

    Vrana should stay 2nd line with little chance of getting top PP unless injury....
    Drouin is a bit more of a wild card, should be top 6 but dabbled in bottom 6 last season, should also be top PP...which has about the same conversion rate as WAS PP#2 lol...

    Close, I'd probably go Drouin here and hope for better deployment/ MTL figuring out how to get some PP points....

    One of them is 24 with two 53 point seasons, the other is 23 with one 47 point season.

    I would rather Drouin.

    For context, MTL ran 3 "scoring" lines, so even if Drouin moved up and down the lineup he's still a "top 6" forward for all intents and purposes.

    He had a great first 3/4 of the season but then dipped in the last 1/4

    Also, the Canadiens PP was horrible and he still managed to produce some PP points.

    It's close, but I think Drouin's ceiling is higher and Vrana floor is lower.
    I'll take Drouin.

    I'd prefer Drouin here (can't believe I actually typed that).

    I've never been a huge fan of his, even when there were people out there thinking he had PPG+ upside. That said, in this case, he has more value than Vrana who imo has nothing more than 50-55 pt upside in his best season. Drouin, on the other hand, is a safer bet to reach the 50-55 pt total given his deployment, and he might even eclipse 60 pts. My issue with Drouin is that although I don't think he will ever live up to the hype he had when first entering the league, he still has modest value and more value than someone like Vrana.
    12 team, H2H, salary cap
    1 pt/G or A, 2 pts/W, 1 pt/OTL, 1 pt/SO

    Defense: S. Gostisbehere, M. Heiskanen, O. Ekman-Larsson, TBD

    Drouin here.

    I own Vrana and would easily trade him for Drouin. Vrana is stuck behind that first line and on the 2nd PP unit.

    Vrana if you want less upside but get a bit more multi-cat on Hits..

    drouin if you want a small gamble for more PTS..however Drouin provides no multi-cat so if he doesnt produce he is rather useless
