One of them could've gotten over their ******** feelings and decided to stay. Turns out Drury wanted to play out his boyhood fantasy with NYR and had no intentions of re-signing. Regier didn't go "confidently" into that next season, he flat out said the team wouldn't be as good. Top centers don't come cheap and don't get traded without a ransom, so blame 20 some other GMs for not acquiring top Cs over the last few years too.
They lowballed Briere right before free agency and were prepared to match Drury's deal in NY but you're right he didn't want to stay. It's not about going out and getting top centers. Go out and get any centers. Go get a checking center. Go get someone that can play center so that Ales Kotalik and Jochen Hecht don't have to.
