Drury < Nothing

the point of this trade for NY would be have three purposes in order of importance:
1) unload Drury
2) Get younger (Kessel will enter his prime as the rest of the team does)
3) Free up cap space. Even if Kaberle bolts - NY frees up (7.5-6)+ 7 = 9.5 million.

Putting in Dubinsky would not only skew the value - but remove one of the main purposes of the trade - unloading Drury.
