Jonathan Drouin Returned To Practice Today With The Syracuse Crunch

from Lindsay Kramer of Syracuse.com,

Here are 9 takeaways from his post-practice press conference:

He's back because he missed hockey

"Sitting at home is not what I wanted to do. I want to play hockey, help the Crunch,'' he said. "I missed hockey sitting at home. Watching hockey on TV and all that stuff is not what you want to do. I'm happy to be back here and playing hockey.''

"I'm a hockey player. You love hockey. You want to be part of a team.''

His relationship with Tampa Bay is salvageable

"I think our relationship's fine. We've talked to make the decision to come back here,'' he said. "I think we're going to fix this in the summer and see how it goes from there.''

There are no guarantees of a callup this season

"It's going to be up to me to put in the work. I'm not just going to get called up to get called up,'' he said. "I have to put in the work here, and that's what I plan to do.''

Sounds like Stevie Y finally got this jerk to sing the right tune.  No team in their right mind would trade for this bag of troubles.
