Yeah, Briere ist a totally different thing, i do understand that people were pissed that we let him walk. I almost certainly would've made this team better the last few years. I'm just not sure about Drury and i doubt that he would've signed for 6 million or less.

I understand that point of view, and I don't particularly want Drury back if there are better options, certainly not as his full current salary. But if he could function as a 3rd line center, for a reasonable price ($1.5? $2?), then I think we could definitely use his services.
3rd line center for 2 million, sure, i wouldn't be opposed to that. As long as we don't touch his current contract and don't complain about Regier not giving him the same money, i'm fine.
