I can't believe we're still on this.
I brought in Redden b/c you said fiscally responsible, which is the exact opposite of that contract so it has some merit. But fine leave that out.
Drury is not better offensiviely than Nylander, and if you forget is about $3 mil more. that $3mil could have been used on other pressing needs that season such as defensemen.
I'm not made at the Gomez deal, which in fact I really don't have much of a problem w/. yeah its overpayment, but he is a playmaking center which is what the team Needed last year.
There was absolutely NO NEED for Drury last year. None, whatsoever.
