I won't fault Drury at all if he decides to come back next year. Even if it's just in a 4th line role, he may not be ready to hang up his skates just yet.
Drury has every right to play out his contract. Our GM signed it, and Drury should not be demonized because of what he makes.
With that being said, I do hope he retires. He really has no purpose on this team. With our depth, we really don't need him for anything other than the occasional faceoff. That is certainly not worth the wasted roster spot. Other than faceoffs, there is not a single thing he does that one of our younger players cannot do better. I would rather have youth playing and getting some experience than watch Chris Drury do his best impression of McCabe's skating acumen.
