It's such an off-the-wall rumor, that it's honestly not even worth discussing. I think Sather has made it pretty clear that, if you're 35+, you're not getting a multi-year contract.
we won't have to replace Drury 2 years from now via FA. Dubi and Ani should and most likely will be ready. in fact I think Dubi will be a better player than Drury in 2 years anyway.

and to your last point... it is worth discussing b/c otherwise I would have to focus on my job. wouldn't want to do that now.
