From what I remember out of SJ, Sutter wasn't the biggest fan of Jillson. Didn't like his mental mistakes and was unable to develop any confidence in his abilities. In any event, the Flames don't really need a guy like Jillson -- not to say they would refuse it if the offer was right, but there is no need for him at all.

As for Drury -- if I were the Flames, I'd take what they got for Drury over Jillson alone any day of the week. But that's just me.
