Allan Walsh, a highly active agent on social media who represents clients such as Jonathan Drouin, Marc-André Fleury, and several other players, has made a significant statement regarding Drouin's future.

Known for his critical stance against NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Walsh seizes every opportunity to blame and disparage him. When Bettman eventually steps down, Walsh will likely be among the happiest individuals.
Focusing back on his clients, Jonathan Drouin is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. Contrary to expectations, negotiations between Drouin's camp and the Colorado Avalanche were at a standstill as of yesterday. However, there's been a major development.
"According to Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, Allan Walsh, the agent of Jonathan Drouin, is expected to meet with Chris MacFarland, the Avalanche's GM, this week to discuss a potential new contract. With less than a month until free agency begins, Drouin is likely a top priority for the Avalanche." - Evan Rawal

The Avalanche are currently navigating through uncertainty. They lack clarity on Gabriel Landeskog's return timeline and are dealing with Valeri Nichushkin's six-month suspension.
Landeskog, who missed this season, has indicated a return next campaign, though the exact timing is unclear. Nichushkin, on the other hand, is under contract until 2030, posing a significant salary cap challenge even if the team decides to move on from him.
Given these circumstances, MacFarland is compelled to offer Drouin a contract extension with very modest terms, despite Drouin deserving a substantial raise. The critical question now is whether Drouin will accept a discounted deal to stay with the Avalanche or move to another team.
