hes an exceptional player. And im not even talking about his goal or assists. he plays a complete game.

if you could make a player that would be absolutely 100% perfect for tom renneys system and style of play, it would be drury.

It didn't sink in for me either until he scored a meaningful goal during a game that actually counted. He was left so wide open for that game winnner. It is a good start to say the least.

Exactly. I was at the game and said "that's one guy who doesn't miss the empty net."

I recently came to this same realization. This whole offseason I tended to focus more on the Gomez signing.

Me too, but I think that's because I was pretty much ok with the Drury signing. It's gonna take me a while to warm up to Gomez.

He is definintly going to become our captain once Jagr retires. Truthfully I don't know if there is anyone else in the NHL today, who I would want leading our current and future crop of young players.

Same here, even thou Gomez was a devil, I couldn't get over Drury scoring that goal, and I kind of ignored him. That goal did kill me.

I always heard "he just finds a way to always be open and in the right place at the right time" watching him tonight I can already say, WOW is that ever true. In the 3rd period he was always wide open in front, always finding the open space. Him and Jagr are going to have a lot of fun and Drury is QUICKLY going to become a fan fav (if he isn't already).

Drury is clutch ( and its showed in his first game as a NYR ), would you guys expect any different. And it showed with that game breaking goal, wait till playoffs this guy is going to kick ass.

I'm beginning think Renny had Drury pegged for the top line the whole time.

I mentioned a month ago this would be the case. Drury playing with Jags, not Gomer, and that 50 goals are within his reach with Jags making the plays.

Jagr made that play, just throwing it to the net.

I kinda thought the same thing...World Class kinda guy.

Man-crush??...Lmao, I'm in love with this guy already!!

I watched him very closely at the Garden tonight and it was amazing to watch how he puts himself in a position to score, etc. Smart, smart hockey player.

On another note, can't wait for Saturday to face a much tougher Ottawa opponent to see how we match up. Should be a good test...

drury did what he always does....plays well defensively....finds open ice...makes very good passes and always has his head up and reads the play very very well......name another player in the nhl that the rangers would want their young players looking up to in the near future when they all come up?......a winner, a business-like approach....goal scorer....clutch....leader...playmaker.....great teammate......


this guy is SPECIAL....i watched most of the sabres games last year because he was on the team....i go to school in buffalo so they are always on.....and i can tell you to expect more of the same from this class-act guy

I know I certainly did. If so, Renney was probably smart to play Gomez and Jagr first because it was the, what did he call it? most obvious thing in the world to do? I always thought of it as Gomez being a play maker, setting up Shanahan, the shooter and Jagr the guy who controls the play and Drury the guy who is always in the right place at the right time. But who knows? Like Gomez says "things don't always click at first." Come January, it might be Gomez and Jagr again but if it comes to that, that will probably mean that it will be Gomez and Jagr WITH chemistry just like how he said it took time for him to find chemistry with mogilny, elias, gionta... I bet watching Jagr play from the bench helps educate won on how he plays and how to play with him. Send Drury to the video room!

The guy is always in the right place at the right time. It's really as simple as that. He is just solid in every aspect of the game. Glad he is wearing Ranger blue now.

I'd give up a testicle and a kidney to have him back on the Sabres.
