I can only wonder what makes Drury a top candidate for captain when he does nothing above average. shoot, score, check, fight. etc...
The man seems to be one of the quietest players on the bench and his play on the ice is not leading by example.
We can all rest assured of one thing.....He will not let it ruin his weekend.
If seeing a guy take a Kovalchuk slapshot to the ankle, get back up after limping around, and then block another one, and do that sort of thing doesn't inspire a team to some point, IDK what does.
Having played and watched a lot of lower level hockey, IMO stuff like forechceking hard, creating turnovers, blocking shots, defensive plays, those things inspire a player more than a pretty goal. Or a lot of goals.
