If you want to look at one aspect of Drury, he's probably not a 7M a year player. Thankfully he does a lot more than one thing.

The issue is you want your highest paid players to be your most productive. And by and large they were.

For that matter, how many 3rd line centers score 25 goals? How many lead their team in goal scoring? He shouldn't be a third line center. But he was. And he produced.
