You do know that the offensive free wheeling centreman is the style that Edmonton loves right? Drury didnt really fit in Calgary because they are a gritty, speedy team, they hit first then make the play. Edmonton is skate fast, make the play, try to avoid being hit at all times.
Drury is severely overpaid IMO. He would have fit perfectly in Calgary last year too if he didn't want so much money. Not sure what Drury you watch play but the Drury I watch is very fast and gritty as well. He'd fit with almost any team, including the Flames, its just that Warrener & Reinprecht was too good of a deal to pass up.
I know what system the Oilers play....or did play. They started to realize down the stretch that to win hockey games, defence comes first. The Oilers played great defence down the stretch and almost made the playoffs because of that change. For them to go back to the "free wheelin run and gun" system would be very stupid IMO.
