‘Drury, who has seven goals in the Sabres’ 11 playoff games this spring, can be an unrestricted free agent July 1. He made $3.15 million this season, and with the Sabres, the issue is whether Buffalo can find a way to re-sign both Drury and his co-captain and fellow center Daniel Briere, who also can be on the market if he hasn’t re-signed by July 1. Briere made $5 million this season under a one-year arbitration award. In Buffalo, the smart money seems to be on Drury staying and Briere leaving, and it seems inconceivable the Sabres would allow both to leave.’
