Drury is not really any of those.

Richards is a fantastic hockey player. As far as talent goes, I would trade Dubinsky for him in a heartbeat. AS FAR AS TALENT GOES.

That contract is brutal, though.

And he is 29 years old, how much longer will he be putting those numbers up?

Dubinsky has a lot of upside and potential.

So, i could go either way on this one.

Let's all remember that next year, GM's may be granted a FREE buyout. Which means Redden would be gone instantaneously with no cap hit. That frees up 6.5 mil instantly. And suddenly Richards' contract doesn't look so bad, considering he and Gaborik will be glued at the hip.

With all due respect Supersonic - Drury's average point total per year is 60.
