Jay Greenberg-Tortorella's Rangers on path to playoffs

Quote:
The Rangers' two highest- paid players by far are their two biggest disappointments, and yet they have made it to the All-Star break six points ahead of the 52-game pace of a year ago, up 13 goals while down 15 goals against.
Quote:
Every young veteran on the team -- Marc Staal, Brian Boyle, Artem Anisimov, Brandon Prust, Callahan, Dubinsky -- has elevated his game a level from 2009-10, Tortorella's first full season. Though these players have gained more maturity because of their experience, it also is undeniable that the coach pushing them has matured them, too.
Dan Girardi too.

Quote:
When Callahan and Dubinsky return, Drury's struggles will be addressed in a way not likely to leave an aging captain happy, one more challenge this coach seems likely to handle. Despite all of the injuries and Gaborik's struggles, Tortorella has pushed almost all the right buttons and has his team in position to be a team nobody would want to face in the playoffs.
It's not going to end well in NY for Drury.

Greenberg also mentioned the youth on D with Michael Sauer,Matt Gilroy and Ryan McDonagh. The team has allowed the 4th fewest goals in the conference and scored the 5th most goals in the east with Gaborik struggling in addition to lacking a #1 center.

It wouldnt surprise me if Drury calls it quits at the end of this season. He doesnt have much left in the tank and he knows it. Rangers wont give their captain Redden treatment.

How about a pic then?



As for Drury, seeing as how he's such a great team guy and always willing to do what's best for the team, why doesn't Sather get him to waive his NMC and ship him to Toronto. It's what's best for the team, right?

Well, Torts is using him so he's needed by the team (at least by Torts choices) and leaving isn't for the best of the team then is it?
By the end of the season, it might be different though.

A lot of people give Drury a lot of flaming, but remember it's Torts that keep playing him and Drury is giving the team the best he have (even if it's not good enough, but you can't blame him for that).

We got to give Drury credit for his effort, he keeps going out to play even if he gets a lot of bad **** called after him.

I just can't see Drury walking away from $7m next year. He'll convince himself that this year is a fluke and he will prove to everyone he can still play with a good showing next season. It's time to ask him to waive his NTC. It's time to scratch him. If he refuses to waive, if scratching him doesn't elicit a response that either improves his play or changes his stance on waiving, it's would be time to give him the Nylander treatment and tell him to leave the team.

At this point I would be happy with someone claiming him on re-entry waivers. I would be happy with a buyout. I will pay this guy to not be a Ranger. 1 more year of this guy.

Drury has a NMC not just a NTC.

Also, hes making $5 million real dollars next year (still alot).

Anyone else think Drury retiring is a realistic possibility after the season? I certainly hope so, I think we should all put Drury in touch with Gil Meche (Gil Meche walks from $12 million)

Which I covered basically with the waiver talk. He'll still get his money under the re-entry waiver scenerio. To ensure he still plays in the NHL, you can call around. A playoff team will pick up Drury for $3.5m, especially if we made the move prior to this year's trade deadline. He can refuse to waive, but that won't prevent him from staying out of the pressbox or getting bought out.
