Jonathan Drouin interviews fans in Old Montreal

August 27, 2019

Hey, Jonathan Drouin here. We’re in Old Montreal to find out what fans
think of the Canadiens’ offseason acquisitions… and Jonathan Drouin. What do you think about the expectations this year? What do you expect out of the Montreal Canadiens? I think they’re going in the right direction. Nice. What do you think about their new additions,
like Jonathan Drouin? Jonathan Drouin – I think we needed, like a fast forward. So, I think that’s what we missed, and… yeah. Nice. How many points do you think he’s going
to get this year? Oh, I think he’s going to get…
I’d say he’s going to get about… I hope at least 80. Ah nice. Yeah, at least 80. That’s good. I hope so. Yeah. Yeah, what would you tell him? No… that’s not you, is it? No, no! Ok good, I was like, that’s a good… I would say “Nice to meet you,” and… A couple of advice for him? Don’t take Montreal too seriously. We know we’re always hard on our fans.
I think he knows that already. He’s very mature, and I’d wish him the best of luck. Okay! That’s it. Perfect. Thank you. Take care. Have a good one. You too. [Would you want, maybe, a signed T-shirt
by Jonathan Drouin?] Sure! [They haven’t been signed yet, so do you
want me to just get Jonathan Drouin to sign it?] Sure. Here, I’ll sign it for you. Ah, I knew it! I knew it! That’s awesome. You changed a lot, man. For the good or the bad? For the good! Ok, thank you, thank you. Do you know who this guy is? It’s… It’s… I don’t know who he is, but he’s cute! I don’t know! That’s good, thank you. Wow! Do you know who this is? Karl Alzner. Yep, that’s good. Bravo. Ales Hemsky Yep, that’s good. You’re good at this. Two out of three. Jonathan Drouin. Good! That’s good. That one wasn’t too hard? No, I wasn’t sure. No? That’s good. Perfect. Do you have any advice for Jonathan Drouin about the city of Montreal? He’ll do well in the city of Montreal. Perfect. He’ll score a lot of goals. Thank you. How many goals do you think he’ll score
this year? Um… 39. Ok, 39.
One less than 40 is good. Yes. Thank you. Yep, we’re going to give him a T-shirt. That’s him! Yes, it’s me. Oh my God! Here you go. Merci! Go next to him! Oh my God! Here. Wait! Oh!
That is so cool! Who’s your favorite player with the Montreal Canadiens? Max Pacioretty. Oh wow, I work out with Max. You? Who’s your favorite player? Jonathan Drouin! Good! That’s a great answer. What do you know about Drouin? How many goals do you think that guy is going to score this year for us — for the Canadiens? Oh, 25? 25, that’s a good number, We have high expectations for this year. Yep. Perfect, perfect. We love high expectations. At center or on the wing? Oh, you’re asking the questions now? Here, we’ll make a switch. Are you excited to play with Gally? Yep, I’m really excited to play with him. It’s not fun to play against him. I’m happy to have him on my team. Same thing for Shea Weber. How many do you think Jonathan Drouin will get in Montreal this year? How much money, or…? No, no. In terms of points, or production? Well, I think 65 points is realistic. Yep, that seems realistic… What are your expectations for the team this year? We need to make it to at least the third round. At least the third round of the playoffs. Okay. What do you think Jonathan Drouin will achieve? 50 goals. 50 goals…
Ok, we’ll try for that. It looks like I’ve got some work to do this summer…
But it’s no problem, I’ll work on it. After our visit in the Old Port, it seems
expectations are pretty high. I think I have my work cut out for me
to score 50 goals, but… You know, I’ll return to the gym tomorrow, get skating,
and get to work on it.

    He was destin to be a HABS! WELCOME HOME JO!

    This video is funny; most fans did not recognize Drouin. Unfortunately, the HABS have been mired in mediocrity since their loss in 1980 to the North Stars. Patrick Roy brought them back to respectability. After he got traded: they lost their identity. In all… they better start winning – again… Nous sommes Canadiens. They need a John Tavares or a Leon Draisiatl down the middle. Go HABS Go!!!

  • Reply Nicholas Chamoun July 15, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    I can't believe he is a Hab!!! We needed a French Superstar for years!

  • Reply jkellzer July 15, 2017 at 7:03 pm

    30 goals and 40-45 assists i think is realistic and fair expectations. excited to see how it plays with Gally!

  • Reply Sports Montage July 15, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    J'ai tellement hâte de le voir jouer !!!

  • Reply Marieville55 July 15, 2017 at 7:14 pm

  • Reply Dalamor101 July 16, 2017 at 12:30 am

    He looks like a nice guy. I cant wait to see him play. After all those years, we finaly have someone who can score goal alone and make everyone around him better.

    Ugh it's hurts so much to watch this!


  • Reply askabourgo July 16, 2017 at 6:05 pm

    Maybe not this year but, 40-50-90 seems realisticfor Drouin … If Chucky learns center and we find a puck-movement D to replace the General

  • Reply Alfred Vega July 16, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    Lmao @ the dude that said he will score 50G? Love drouin but he is mainly a passer not a goal score expect from him anywhere between 20-25 goals with a bunch of assists. Will be amount the best point producer in the league in the power play.
    I'll say 65-70 points season

  • Reply Sébastien Plante July 23, 2017 at 7:07 pm

    the kid have play exactly 164 games, it's exactly 2 full seasons in 3 years (Plus AHL games)… already score 21 goal last year and he's only 22 years of age…he have not touch the start of is Prime years yet…saying he's a futur 30 goal scorer, will see but i dont mind if a guy put around 20 goal in a season but produce over 50 more with great passes… who care 🙂 the pass is sometime more important then the goal itself…no good playmaking passes, no goal !!!
