Drury is also this team's best penalty-killer, best faceoff guy and best defensive forward. That doesn't could for anything? He also scored as many goals as any Ranger this season (including leading the team in PP goals and GWGs and OTGs).

I think you are forgeting that

a) Dubi was a rookie
b) Dubi played almost half the season on the third line while Drury was w/ Jagr or Shanny
c) By the end of the year I Dubi's FO's were right up there w/ Drury, and it seemed that he won the more crucial ones. Especially in the offensive zone.

yes he is the best defensive forward on the team. But he isn't worth $7 mil. That contract his a salary cap killer. You don't pay $7 mil a year for defense unless you are a defensemen.
