I don't have a problem with Drury's comments. I think he isn't the right guy to be Captain, but he is right to a certain degree.

Messier was kind of a hypocrite. He hated Nielson's system in 1992 and 1993 and went public with it, but when Colin Campbell used the same system in 1997, he kept his mouth shut and said it was necessary.

Drury may have never liked Renney but kept his mouth shut, which is really not a fault, depending from the point of view.

Drury basically said the team needed a swift kick in the behind and a new coach might do that. But I don't think he is deflecting criticism away from the players.

Anybody with a pulse knows the combination of the old coaching staff and the current roster was toxic, not just the fault of either party singularly.

Let's just see how the next 20 games play out. The players have a brief reprieve, but it will disintegrate if they keep playing like poo.
