Drury has been a good NHL player. His contract and his production did not match up but that's no reason to be dancing on his grave. He served this franchise with dignity and honor.
I'd say that since Drury came back and played last year that he doesn't qualify as "injured" at this point. If he needed surgery he would have gotten it by now. Suddenly pulling a "oh **** I'm injured" card at this point would be a bit too suspicious IMO.
