Saddled? Gaborik is an elite player who had a down year. He scored 42 goals last year on a team that was offensively inept. I could say the same about Kessel if you want to talk about contracts. Just because a player has a big contract on their team doesn't mean they are saddled. I'm sure Gabby will bounce back next year and wouldn't trade him unless an offer came that i couldn't refuse.

As for Drury. he has one more year left. And maybe you should learn some things about Drury before you assume that people are just knocking the Leafs. Drury's an American. He was a Rangers fan growing up and it was his dream to one day play for them. Do you think a guy, who has become the captain of the team he dreamed of playing for as a child would want to waive it to go anywhere else? I don't and Drury has made that fairly clear as well.
