This has nothing to do with the fact that Drury was overpaid as a UFA. If he signed a deal for 4 or 5 million per (which would have been viewed as a ridiculous steal at the time) he would still be bought out. He has been that bad.
And unless Sather or someone in the organization beat his knees and back with a pipe, its Drury's "fault", or his body's anyway.
It's no ones fault. He's getting old. The bodies of old athletes break down, and they get hurt. It's part of the risk of signing guys to long term deals.
It's just pain.
