Torts would have almost certainly done that already if Drury was actually the uncaring/paycheck seeking piece of **** many have portrayed him to be on this thread.

He shouldn't have to nor be expected to. I'm sure you could say the same for Drury. I guess the difference is that Hank's contributions to this team in the last 4 years justify that pay. Nothing Drury has done here or in Buffalo justifies what he's getting paid for here. A lot of the blame goes to Sather, but Drury shouldn't get off scott free either.

Drury reminds me of Chad Pennington. Likable guy, coaches love him, not going to win a championship with him (with that contract).

O wait..
Your analogy is gross and inaccurate. If we buy Drury out the "stink" you speak of sticks around for longer. It's going to take at least the length of Drury's contract for our kids to mature anyway. Once that happens I'd like to have the max amount of cap room available to add pieces to put us over the top.
It sounds strange, but Drury's contract is not hurting us as badly as it could be since we do not have the young core assembled necessary to contend as of yet. Most of our top prospects are either rookies or are a year or two away from the NHL. Dury, Rozsival, and Kotalik's contracts will all be gone pretty much exactly when we're ready to contend if they play this right.

Argh, I have finals to study for. Blech.

Disagree.. You need your kids surrounded by the best possible influence they can get.. I don't see that with him since he's been here, the same can be said for Redden.

Isn't it funny that two coaches different though they might be have stuck with him as their captain.

i cannot seperate drury from his contract. i simply cannot. he an rozy are simply killing this team. when your highest paid players are your worst players you end up with well........ us.

any talk of his contributions must be relative to his cost.

just for the heck of it, the way i see it, capt cash and his 2 goals gets to cash a check for something like $51,219 per game- based on an 82 game season and no playoffs......

assuming he pays @ 40% taxes.

$51,219 per game

hes just slightly overpaid for his contribution.

Drury is fair from the worst player on this team.

Again, go back to Hank. Has he been 400% better than his first two seasons?

Professional athletes are wildly, grossly and offensively overpaid. In other news, water is wet.

Dear god, you just cant let that go can you?

His play was CERTAINLY 400% better than his salary at that point in his career, and he probably would have been offersheeted more had he allowed it to go that far.

Weird, he took less money and is paid fairly. But keep comparing him to Drury, its really helping your case.

You just helped SBOB's case though, if Henke was on the open market, yes, he wouldve 'allowed' his pricetag to go up alot more than what he got paid as a RFA.

And its also funny you telling someone they 'cant let it go'

He took less money? And we know this how?

The fact is he's not playing any better making this kind of money than he did his first two seasons.

People talk about hoe overpaid Drury is and he needs to do more because of his salary. But the fact is, in his first two seasons here, he basically matched what would his average season despite being a third line center.

So, if he's being judge by his salary and he needs to do more, why can't the same be said about Hank?

Because average for Drury is not equal to 7.2 mil. But average for Hank IS worth 6.5 million. Ive said this over and over again to you, but you still come back with the same point?

He didn't take less money per se, ok, fine I'm speculating. But you're telling me, hank as an RFA wouldn't fetch 7 mil plus in order for another team to have a shot at him? Anything less and hank makes what, .3-.4 mil more than he makes now. You hit the 7 whatever plus that a team offers and the Rangers might say **** it and take the 3 1st round picks. So, ok, let me rephrase, THEORETICALLY Hank might have taken less money by being extended instead of hitting RFA.

Hey even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes, I would HOPE they have better info then what I see or read. Like I said earlier, you can't scratch or waive the Captain of your team, if only to save face as an organization. It would be media frenzy and quite disastrous.

Trade Scott Gomez, sure no problem because it was smart and do-able. Keeping things hush hush for Chris Drury, in hopes that people will forget about him, priceless.
