And as for Drury never being traded away, JUST THINK GOMEZ. No one thought HE would be traded and He has a Limited NMC in HIS contract, but Sather himself pulled it off.

Some people even though they have it, if they dont feel comfortable living in the area or hate coming to the rink every day, may envoke their right, or not envoke it. Here's to hoping the "captain softie" dont not envoke it

I would be for moving Drury if he will accept a move and I would be happy with a similar return for Gomez. Removing the contract is worth it.

Then be smart with the freaking money

but I don't think Drury is going anywhere. Its 2 years and he can help in many ways. Redden is another story of course

There's a big difference between and limited NTC and a full NMC. Sather didn't need Gomez's OK to trade him.

One of the things that always gets neglected in the "trade Drury" discussions is that a major reason he signed here is to be closer to his family. It's entirely possible that he'd rather stay in NY near his family then having a chance to play on a better team elsewhere.

The Drury family had another baby this year so I don't really think they intend to move anywhere. I'm sure having an extended family in Connecticut to help take care of the new baby and their other 2 kids is immensely helpful.

After this season? No freaking way does anybody take him on. One does not have anything to do with the other. Gomez is a proven 2nd liner with dynamic offensive aspects to his game at times. Drury is now a hard working 3rd-4th liner and an excellent PK'er. There are so many cheaper options than drury to fill that role that nobody would trade for him with the exception of maybe a contender at the deadline of his expiring contract year.

looking past Captain America's Salary Drury is a PK, shot blocking, never quit blood and guts leader. He was one of the guys leading the blue shirts down the stretch. Look at his role on team USA in the Olympics this year along with Callahan. Sather had to overpay to get this leader, what can you do? since the blue shirts are stuck with him I would appreciate the ton of good thing Drury provides. Heck, he started scoring some clutch goals down the stretch as well

Not to derail the thread, but I haven't met a single person that wouldnt take Drury for Tim Connolly right now here in Buffalo.

Connoly has 1 year left making 4.5 I believe, and Drury has his 2 years at 7.

I think he would waive for a chance to return to Buffalo, and they are desparate for the leadership he brought when he was here (especially after their terrible no grit/no passion playoff series that just ended)

Connolly could easily be Gaborik's C

Why would Washington want a player that is no more valuable to them than Brooks Laich is at least twice the cost?

Laich does everything that Drury can do and do it better and he'll make 3-4 million less.

I would highly doubt that Drury is a fit in Washington at all and even at 3.5 million I would doubt the Caps would look to add him.

Drury is an over rated 2nd liner.
