People often use the Drury/Gomez trade as the benchmark for shooting down trades. That's BS as well. Both had good first years here. Gomez had a propriety skill set and we never found a winger that fit his style. DRury's health declined. Both were overpaid, yes, but they were both highly sought after FAs not just by the NYR.

This still doesn't deter any NHL team from pursuing high priced free agents. Look at the impact of adding FA talent like Brad Richards! Has Gaborik been a bust? Sometimes trades dont work out. Move on. So run along with your superstitions.
How am I being superstitious? When did I say that Nash will be a bust because Gomez and Drury didn't work out?
