In fact, when we harken back to all the talk about how "Renney and his system lost the team," the prime suspect in quitting was Scott Gomez, in my opinion.
I am much more happy with the MDZ pass through the middle to Gaborik who then goes on a breakaway than I would be watching Gomez carry the puck end to end and firing into the goalie's chest while Gabby coasts in behind him wondering where the pass was...

I hate "don't you." It's like we're supposed to feel that way. You're entitled to your opinion and I could not disagree more with it. I don't have much of an issue with Drury on the ice.

Drury has played really well the last 10 games. Getting him in front of the net on the PP has done wonders.
Completely agree with this.....for people saying it was the olympics that turned him around. I disagree with that. Although i think it helped speed up his game playing around great talent, Drury was coming into form before the olympics.

I think the concussion was really underlooked by the fans, i mean didn't he miss like 2 games or something. For his well being he should have stayed out of the lineup until completely healthy.

I agree with this, the only thing I will point out is that Drury wasn't doing anything offensivly than either. He did not look like he was about to break out either.

Someone many many threads ago pointed out he had hoped that Torts learned somthing from Wilson by using Drury in front of the net on the PP & not at the point. Drury needs lot's of PP time in front of the net to be sucessfull.

I hope you are just kidding.

Gomez is on a tear lately and he has 50points in 66 games played. He had a horrible start to the season but he's been on a ppg pace for a while now.

Oh, he's also pretty responsible defensively and can kill penalties. So, I hope that wasn't going to be your main argument for Drury.

Gomez would have fit in perfectly with the team. Remember when Jagr was here and always attracted the opposing teams best D-men? Well, Gomez had 70 points in 81 games that year. Gaborik would be in a similar role and I bet our 2nd line would have a bit more jam to it.

Let's also not forget that Gomez can actually make great passes and he can easily enter the offensive zone using his speed and skating ability.

Drury can't travel more than 3 feet with the puck on his stick.

Gomer > Drury and it's not even close.

I dont care how much this guy is getting paid or how maybe unemotional he may seem off the ice in interviews...this guy is busting his ass for this team on the ice and is showing the emotion needed. He is playing in all situations and has been playing very since the olympics break...even a bit before then. Dru is stepping it up and I hope he stays like this.

You're exactly right. Gomez was traded because he had more value than Drury.

The bolded sentence is the reason why I was against trading Gomez instead of Drury.

Gotta say I like that Drury is finally showing an offensive pulse.

Good for us.

Still - not worth $7mil, but he's not going anywhere. If he leads us to the cup I will forgive the transgression that is his 'salary vs. perfomance'. Lol. Start working, Drury!

When and why did this thread turn into a Gomez vs Drury thing?

Sting36E always made good points on why Gomez was overrated and not nearly as valuable as his points made him seem to be. Check out those posts.

Well in this scenario you are saying we deal Drury instead of Gomez to get the money for Gaborik. We would be better offensively, no doubt, but I wonder how much defense 5 on 5 and penalty kill we would have sacrificed. That stuff adds up too.

This discussion is pointless since nobody would have taken Drury's 7 million dollars. The Habs have always had a hard on for Gomez.

Not to mention Drury has a NMC, which has seemingly been forgotten about a million times on this board.

U can't have it both ways. Gomez had more vaule due to his age, skill & not having a no trade. I had no issue with the trade than or now.

Exactly. Look, we are stuck with him, but the contract would be easier to stomach if we got rid of Redden's. Rozy's 5 mil cap hit isn't that horrible if he plays like this. So really, Redden's contract may end up being the only cancerous one on the club. But the extra 3-3.5 mil Drury makes really does hurt.

Everyone assumes Drury was tradeable. I dont think he was even if he waived His NTC.

I loved hearing that we signed Gomez and Drury back in 2007, but I quickly soured when I heard the ridiculous terms of the contracts. At the very least, I could justify the signings in some way....same goes for Roszival whose contract in a vacuum doesnt hurt the team nearly as much as many people think.

Redden is, and will always be, the contract that Sather shelled out that is nothing but mindboggling.

Id chalk that up to coincidence more than anything. He doesnt play many minutes anywhere, which makes an already imperfect +/- stat even more imperfect.

Drury has been anything but clutch as a Ranger....and I have probably only missed a handful of games in the past 10 years, most of which are due to my father passing away or Versus blacking out games.
