Redden was just another Canadian with an excellent prime. I like him, and wish him all the best in his endeavors, but if he comes back and plays like a 4th line scrub, I'm going to think of him less than I do now. Yeah, he's had a fine career, but the fact of the matter is that his "fine career" means nothing now, and he's a complete waste of 7m in cap space.
Now, by no means do I think he owes the Rangers organization any dues or that he should be forced to retire, but I'm probably going to remember him by how terrible he was in his final years here instead of how great of a player he was his entire career.
I have never heard of Drury being referred to as that.
Good player? one of the greatest ever? Hard pressed to put him in my top 20
