you don't care what a 30g 65p center would get in today's market because it makes what you've presented the steam pile of crap that it it...


good work with the revisionist history. you haven't changed much....
"Steaming pile of crap"? You mean indisputable facts?

What a 30g/65p center gets in this market means nothing. Anyone could have told you that Drury wasn't worth the $7.5M, especially at a time when the salary cap was something like $15M lower than it is now. By the way, a center coming off of a 70+ point season in Richards got $6.6M per.

Not revisionist. At all. Drury was a 3rd line C on elite teams. When he was in Calgary/NY? Pretty much proves that if Drury is a team's top-6 center, that team is going nowhere.
