It happened fast which should lead everyone to believe that sather clearly caved in. Drury is still a valuable hockey player. He plays hard whether you want to believe it or not. You can continuously be ignorant and be angry at him for the contract he has or you can finally come back down to earth now that its been what 3-4 years that hes been here and realize the type of player he actually is. He broke is finger blocking a shot in a SCRIMMAGE. The guy does have intangibles. No it didnt warrant the contract that he has, but he does so many things. Yeah itd be nice if he scored more, but that hasnt happened. He still is a great PKer, shot blocker, defensive forward, and I believe a good leader. Grow up already.
Unfortunately this is professional sports, and contracts play a huge role in how a player is viewed. That's only fair, given that it effects the rest of the team.
I'm no Drury hater, but his contract is a burden.
Don't get all bent out of shape because some people actually pay attention to contracts in a league with a salary cap in a professional sport.
