Yesterday Drury's Bombing, Today He's Overpaid

Yesterday Darrly Dobbs at The Hockey News said Chris Drury was bombing on Broadway, today John Grigg also at The Hockey News says he's the second most overpaid player in the league...

2. Chris Drury, Center, Rangers – $7.05 million

Team captains are normally offensive catalysts. And that’s what the Rangers thought Drury would be when they signed him to a five-year, $35.25-million deal. But Drury failed to crack the 30-goal mark last season and is on pace for the worst points total of his NHL career. The Hockey News is really coming down on Drury. Haven't they noticed he's scored in two straight game?

that is a list of many of the current captains in the NHL, many of which do not "score like a captain." There is way more to bein captain--like knowing how to win.
