That makes the most sense really. Drury has two very large wingers and they are all ex-centers which means they all have to be somewhat defensively responsible whereas Gomez has/had Zherdev and Naslund who arent exactly defensive masters. I would rather have the Drury line out there who can work the puck down low and create chances with their size while keeping the puck out of their own net and allow Gomez and co. to free-wheel and put up some points.
But hey, thats just my opinion on why it is like that. It could totally random.
