That's like asking, "Would you rather have a #1 centerman or a #2 centerman on the Rangers?"

Considering...
A)Drury's contract sucks and is for a few more years and Richard's... isn't.
B)Richards is the better player

I would choose Richards.

However if it was would you rather have

Drury + 1st or Richards I would pick Drury

If Slats trades Dubi for Richards, he should be fired on the spot and then publicly whipped on Times Square.

Agreed.

And silly videos about Colton Orr too, except that should be for all months.

Too bad the Stars would laugh and hang up on Sather. Then probably block his number.

Brad Richards hasn't been great for the Stars, there are a lot worse offers they could get for an underachiever with his contract. And yeah, Drury's contract isnt better at all but it'd be a change of scenery for both. Not that it matters with Dru's full NMC

I don't understand how this is even a choice--Drury is already on the Rangers and isn't going anywhere. Richards may be added, but not with Drury going the other way.

You should be ashamed if you've voted for Drooly.

Are we only talking about last season's statistics when voting? You know thats what every single person is going to vote on.

Drury has the potential to put up 70 points if put in the right situation and be a playoff performer as well. Not to mention be one of the best captains in the franchise history.

Richards is on a team with much more offensive firepower and is a much more offensive player in general. Richards is also almost 10 years younger that Drury. This is like comparing apples to oranges. Every smart gm would take the younger guy who had a better season last year who has more of a potential upside.

Put Drury on last years Flyers and Richards on last years Rangers and I bet Drury would have put up similar numbers to Richards and vice versa.

You have to take everything with a grain of salt when talking about potential statistics when they played under Renneys system that had zero offense last season.

Either way I voted for Drury because I know what he can do.

Edit: Crap, we were talking about Brad? I would definitely take Drury then. Drury is much better defensively and has all the intangibles in the locker room that the HF gm's never see.

Drury and it isnt even close in my books. The team would fall apart without him.
