now if you are going by his paycheck than yes that is spectacular (for him).

I mean Alexei Yashin put up better #'s than both of them. Better #'s than drury when he was w/ the piles. Would you consider him spectacular?

I like your optimisim but you are trying to tell me a pond is the same as an ocean.
Are you seriously comparing Yashin and Drury?

Yashin almost barely ever showed up in the postseason, was pretty poor defensively, was a lousy captain, and was overall considered lazy. If he did all of those things then yes, I would consider him spectacular.

You don't need a team of All-stars to go far in the playoffs. Do you suppose we just give up and tank for Tavares or something?

I'm just complimenting two players that I think are both great. I don't see what your problem is

If you look at Drury's career numbers he's always had noticeably more assists than goals. He's not as bad a playmaker as you make him out to be. He does need decent line mates to excel offensively though
