Yeah, maybe "ruined" was a little extreme. We all agree that these guys are overpaid and strapping the team from adding a player or two to help them win. But...that is no excuse for them to not be at the top of thier games at a crucial point. Let's face it, Drury in Buffalo was twice the player he has been this season for the Rangers. Scotty Gomez not too long ago in a Devils sweater threw up an 84 point season. When the Rangers played against him, he was very much a factor. I understand the overpayment, but at this point where is thier game...and thier effort they used to put forth?

Funny thing is I truly like both of these players. Just wondering what the hell happened to them? The icetime is ceretanly there...but where are the intangibles that they came here with?
