Anaheim Ducks Bob Murray summarizes the Doruin situation appropriately


The hype machine has played up how sought after Jonathan Drouin is as a player and yet this remark is a nice bucket of cold water on the situation, especially when the "raw deal" has been thrown out time and again regarding the Lightning's dealing with Drouin. There are more remarks form Murray in the LA Times that can be read as the Anaheim Ducks being out of the running.... Or very able to blather things publicly about private talks - something Steve Yzerman does not like. Regardless, you're supposed to earn your spot and rights in this league. Not get it outright regardless of production (or lack there of).
