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.
Drury was being paid $5m by Buffalo, NY overpaid for him. no surprise here. Briere got $8M. The market hasn't changed that much for players with respective pts/goals. Your "facts" are skewed to fit your argument. Just because Buffalo used him on their third line, means he had the skillset of a third line player according to you?

BS. What 3rd line player puts up points the way he did in both the regular/post seasons? How many GWG did he have?

Weren't you making this same exact argument for Dubinsky being bonafide 2C @ 45-50pts a few years back?
