i dont dispute any of your points and i dont doubt he could score goals playing on gomez wing but as i have said its his contract that hancuffs us. i know it is how the market was in the summer and if we didnt pay it someone else would have but for me it is to much.


to others i know Drury wont be traded and i am not whipping him its his contract as stated in other posts, why if you dont like his contract and think trading him to rid yourself of that high contract is for the best is that made to sound like it takes credit away from what he brings to the team?
