Excellent, excellent point SML. I really don't understand people using Drury as the whipping boy here. He has certainly been disappointing this season, but he's far from the real problem. I'm clearly in the minority here, but I still believe that Drury is the right guy to wear the C.

I really don't see what he said in that article that was so bad. The team did need a shakeup. They do need to try a different system. Is there anyone here who would deny that?
