Say what you will about them, but by the nature of those deals, we have to build around them. I LOVE Jags. He is one of my favorite players, but do we re-sign Jags and nab Sundin for a year while we alienate Scotty by not getting him a winger and push Drury farther down the depth chart? I don't really know.
IMO, yes, and if Drury doesn't like it, let him waive his NMC and trade him. Not signing a better player just for the sake of not wanting to push someone else down the depth chart is idiotic, IMO. If you can get a better player, you do it. That's the whole idea, to win, not to have Drury playing 2nd-line center.
