Drury is done. Check his last year stats and medical problems. Ask to the other 28 teams WHY they had not offered him a contract yet ?
But DD is speedy and he'll have better luck getting through on the wings then cross-ice where he gets dominated and stripped of the puck quickly. And when he doesn't have the puck, as a centreman, he gets run over by opponents. If he gets overpowered on the wing, at least your centre can cover up for him to prevent a breakaway or a 3on2 situation. There's a reason the expression "big centre" is popular. We've also seen how Eller played awkwardly and didn't fit when he was put on wing.
