High marks, I didn’t expect him to back, I’m so happy he scored that goal (against the Devils),” Tortorella said. “You watch him in the playoffs, it’s a bit of a struggle. He tried like hell but he slowed down. You look at where does he fit. He’s an older guy.
I asked whether the respect Drury has within the organization, from his teammates, from Tortorella, and the things he brings as a captain are part of the evaluation process when it comes to determining whether to bring Drury back for the last season of his contract.
“Intangibles always come into evaluating,” Tortorella said. “You just can’t let the intangibles override other things, too. Dru and I have a great relationship. We’ve been very honest with one another. Dru is getting older. That’s why he has this chronic knee and it’s amazing he was able to come back when he did. But we have to make decisions for what’s best for the organization moving on.”
Torts basically just told Drury he is not welcomed back...now, he can asked to be traded or he can retire with dignity or continue to collect his check because that is all he cares about...
