Struggling Drury takes blame for Rangers' woes

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news;_yl...v=st&type=lgns

At least he's actually addressing the issue, usually he just doesn't say much of anything. Now all he has to do is start pumping up his teammates and improve his play so that this slide can be resolved.

He said it, Renney said it too. Renney basically said he takes full responsibility for this.

As he should since the players have given up on him.

I'm not trying to be a jerk but I've seen this type of thing MANY times. I'm glad he's stepping up and taking responsibility for his poor play, but I'd rather see his play (along with the rest of the team) do the talking.

I have to look at myself.

Im not doing what I was brought here to do. Im not leading the way I should lead. Im not playing the way I should play.

I stand in front of the guys, Im the captain, Drury said. If you (media and fans) want to point fingers, boo people, write your stories or whatever - it should start with me.
This is why I've always had enormous respect for Chris Drury. He takes responsibility like a man.

Scott Gomez was probably cracking jokes after the game and making fun of John Giannone

so everyone takes blame...yippee...takes a man to own up, especially on guaranteed contracts. If I took blame for something at work, I get fired. These guys do it and it's just words. Follow it up with actions - I ain't looking for someone to take the blame - I'm looking for someone to lead this team out of a funk. It's like when Peter broke mom's favorite vase - everyone took responsibility for it - does that really solve the problem? Arggh, professional sports is getting tiresome.

Has any player ever had their "C" stripped from them? I really would like to see Mara take it

Good, now when will he give up that responsibility or at least change the system around?

Wasn't Elias stripped of the C not too long ago when Sutter came in?

Elias had his C stripped from him. He doesnt suck now. They did change coaches first though...

Im sure its happened many times...

Who would I give the C. Seriously? Id give it to the guy who has shown he deserves it the most...

Blair Betts

If you think he only said this to trick the fans into not booing him then

Why would he be playing around?

Blair Betts does all the things that Chris Drury is advertised to do but really doesn't.

Betts is good at faceoffs, he's probably the best penalty killer in the league and he plays stellar defense. He's also been on the team just about as long as anyone else has and he's never failed to fill his role.

No Im not... he's one guy for all his shortcoming in offensive skills shows heart and hustle on every shift.

If every Ranger hustled like Blair Betts this team would be AOK

Yes, only because Sutter wanted to send a message that its was his team now, and that he will run it as he sees fit. He held a 'competition' for the captaincy in which he evaluated players based on their on-ice play, performance in practice, and poise in the locker room.

I liked Elias as captain... but one cannot argue with the current results. Captain Hook is here to stay (for now).

Lets give the C to our fourth line center who scores 3 goals a year if he's lucky.

a captain is a leader a guy who kicks his teammates in the a@@ when needed or pats them on the back. The guy who doesn't back down from the other team who blocks shots ,grinds it out in the corner , takes the hit to clear the puck. That guy is Blair Betts and if you laugh at that then you really don't understand team sports

Ok, so let's give it to our 3rd line center who gets paid 7 mil a year to play sub-par defense and chip in 2 goals once every 10 games. All while being LAST on the team in hits.
