Chris Drury

I know many of you are on the "we won't sign him" bandwagon, but didn't we all say this last year with Savard and Chara? We have enough cap space to sign him and keep our RFA's while also spend some on a few roster pluggers if necessary, and that is without trading Muzzy.

Drury will likely sign a 4 year/22+ million dollar deal or a long term deal at about 0<5.5<6.15.

I don't think Drury is a 5 million dollar player. IMO he is a 4.7ish type, but hey, the UFA is always overrated. In any case, a lot of experts actually think Drury will sign here. He has said before he would like to play for the Bruins. He could be on a line with Sturm and Bergeron. That would be fun to watch. If the Bruins can sign Drury, they would improve their team with 3 lines of being capable to score. This leads me to my point...

Does Chiarelli have a plan? This is strictly based on recent rumours, but if you piece it together it makes perfect sense...

Trade Muzzy for save about 2.9 million

Sign Chris Drury...adding another offensive still have say 6 million in cap space (starting with 8 before the Muzzy deal).

Sign Bill Guerin to replace Muzzy at say 2.5 million for 1 year. Still have 3.5 million in space.

Now you can still sign a veteren D if you want. You upgraded at goal, you upgraded at offense. You defense is a year more experienced...what's not to like?
