Also, I never understood why defensive specialists, which is what Drury has become, are viewed as better defensive players than superstars that play offense and defense. For instance, Crosby who was basically born to play hockey isnt better defensively than Drury? I could list all the attributes that Crosby has over Drury but it would be a long list.

On the offense side I certainly dont buy it. A 7 million dollar forward is supposed to carry a line. See Marian Gaborik. Also, if he played exclusively with Jagr or exclusively with Gaborik is there any reason to believe it would have clicked? I say no way. Lastly, he started the season last year next to Gomez and Naslund. They played good in the Czech Republic and bad in North America. Too bad we couldnt play 80 games in CR.
Theres your first mistake right there.

Only one person thought he was a 7 million dollar forward, and unfortunately, hes the GM of the Rangers.
