Do you really think Drury is that great on defense? I sure as hell don't. He's average on defense and nothing what people make him seem to be.

He's also a -12 and Gomez is a -1.

Gomez played on the PK in NY without a problem... Even still, It doesn't matter who is playing the PK to be honest, its the guy between the pipes that makes or breaks a PK unit.

I don't think we would have sacrificed anything at all in terms of defense if we had kept Gomez over Drury. The truth is that Gomez had value and can still be considered a #2 centermen while Drury is borderline 3rd center.

Only if Gainey had asked for Drury
