Drury is the new Shanny

That's it for Drury now, unfotunately. Everything changes for him now after tonight. Just like Shanny's collision a couple of years ago. He never recovered. Drury has been declining and this might be straw that broke the camel's back, as it were.

How about we wait and see what the extent of the injury is before we decide his career is over?

There may be some truth to this thread, since he obviously is worn down. Hopefully he can recover well but if he doesn't it's gonna suck.

His contract sucks but don't forget the Rangers are a weaker team without him. That just means more Voros yay!

Maybe it will have a reverse effect and Drury will play like a 7 million dollar player.

I don't think people are freaking out, it's common knowledge that players like Drury get worn out. Same as Shanny they play hard and there bodies wear down faster.

His injury hasn't even been announced. There isn't a timeline. All you saw was a short clip. Not enough evidence to declare his career over.

I think there is a Disney movie that goes like this ... or maybe I'm thinking about Rookie of the Year

Pretty ugly hit... If I were Drury, I would question why not a single teammate stepped up after their captain was destroyed by a dirty hit 49 seconds in As far as career implications, he has clearly already lost a step(or 2), and I have no doubts he has at least a concussion. It will be sad to watch him get even worse... Now Dubinsky is out, and I would not be surprised if he has a broken hand. This season got ugly real fast.

Torts stated in post game interview that Drury was concust and he was not sure about Dubinsky but stated he would be out of the line up for a while

Not even a concussion can ruin Drury's weekend.

He'll be fine. He won't be rushed back into action prematurely like they used to do in the past.

I feel bad Drury is hurt and I hope he feels much better soon.

That being said the guy was invisible for two years. I'd rather have AA in his slot and shuffle things around by bringing up Grachev.

I'm annoyed the guy got hurt and by a dirty hit but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued to see a Drury free lineup.

Do we get a break on his contract if he's put on the IR ?
