Maybe call up Byers again
Huggy in the pressbox against most teams
Maybe shock us all & give Corey Locke a shot to try to increase secondary scoring (PAP has shown himself somewhat useful...but...) and move Drury to wing on the 2nd line
Really put some pressure on Dubi, Cally, Lisin, Higgins to put up or shut up!
Just don´t let it ruin Captain Drurys day...
I can't figure out why Callahan and Drury don't generate anything together. I feel like they should be a pair made in heaven, they worked well Dru's first year together.
Maybe Cally should center Dru?? (just throwing it out there)
Neither are particularly good at creating chances for their teammates. They're both better at playing around the net, picking up rebounds and all that. If they had someone that could get them the puck on a regular basis they'd probably be better.
“I’m not a coach that says, ‘Oh, should I just give him the eight or nine minutes?’ He’s gonna play,” Tortorella said. “And if I don’t think he’s able to play at a certain time in the game we’ll give him a rest, but we’re going full-bore with him as we start against Florida.”
“Yeah, I’m traveling, hopefully I’ll get in there tomorrow,” said Drury, who reported he passed about an hour-long series of medical tests on Monday and said he just needed to clear “another good 24 hours.” “Barring anything, I would assume I’ll be in. I don’t anticipate any issues.”
blah blah blah. Is business classy? is anything "classy"?
The overuse of the word is nauseating.
Drury sucks, and is wasting the team's money. Obviously I don't wish an injury on him, but whatever, if it happened, I can't say i'd really care. There are much worse atrocities that happen every single day and go unnoticed.
Agreed, I had such high hopes for him when he came here. He is a 7.5 million dollar Blair Betts.
The Rangers have Drury on the fast track return from the concussion. Cleared to begin working out on Thursday. Rides the bike for 20 minutes on Friday. Skated by himself for 30 minutes on Saturday. Skated with the team in a full practice session on Sunday. He won't play tomorrow against Columbus but at this rate Drury could return for the Florida trip. He is seeing the doctor again tomorrow.
1)Drury comes back to save the sinking ship
2)Drury suffers another concussion and is forced to miss the season enabling the Rangers to use the money on other players.
Either way,the Rangers can't lose
Have people gone crazy, "Drury comes back to save sinking ship". The guy probably wont score more than 10 goals this year lol give me a break his D is only decent because he puts all his emphasis on it.
[QUOTE=mullichicken25;22287715]im sure this will get mixed reactions from this board but I, for one, am happy he's back in the lineup, especially following a big win
i feel like now he can come back into the lineup without as much pressure of feeling like he needs to have a lights out performance to save this team
hopefully he feels like he can just go out there and contribute to the team rather than attempt to carry it
also, I'm hoping he see's some PP time because I don't really feel like Avery or Cally are cut out for it[/QU
The game gets better every year, he was 3rd line material the first year he got here, and is worse now what does that tell you, no matter what situation he will not do anything that consitent or help this team in anyway that will be close to his earnings because he is not skilled enough.
"Rangers coach John Tortorella was more direct, saying that Drury, who played only 19 seconds before Flames forward Curtis Glencross caught him with a blindsided hit to the head, is definitely going to be in and he's not going to worry about managing the captain's minutes, either."
