Isn't he supposed to be the ultimate leader? When Jagr and Shanny left wasn't Drury going to make this team "his own" and "seize the reins?"

We're already paying him 7 million for leadership and intangibles. We shouldn't have to bring in someone else to fill that role for him.
Some guys need help in the room. For all of Mark Messier's accolades, Kevin Lowe was just as valuable as Messier in the room and on the ice. The Rangers missed Lowe's leadership when the Rangers didn't re-sign him.
