Hedman had the puck. Downie jumped in to defend him immediately.

Booth had just gotten rid of the puck. Everyone tied up, the refs jumped in.

Drury didn't have the puck. Nothing happened.

Just making a point

Enough said! Or am I missing something? You don't run our Captain!
I agree. Its embarrassing.

But tell me this. Same captain much different team dynamic. Why so?

Why do the Rangers just let teams run all over them? Henrik gets run at nightly with little to no price to pay....

Who is really responsible for HOW A TEAM REACTS to these situations?

The coach, the captain, the non C leadership, the general cohesiveness of a team.

Lots of new guys on this team

this.


wouldve still liked to see someone challenge Glencross, but it certainly isn't the same when a guy like Neil is throwing the hit.

A check doesn't have to be "illegal" to be a cheap-shot. This one happened to be both though.

Like others have mentioned, I'm downright embarrassed to be a Ranger fan after that display. Absolutely gutless team. Unbelievable.

Have you just start watching hockey? Your mommy is calling you because it's past your bedtime.

That was not a cheapshot. So a player getting hit when he didn't have the puck is now a cheapshot. 2 minute interference call.

Glencross is NOT a dirty player, we've established that. But what he did to Dru was completely against the rules. Whether he meant to do it or not, his hockey awareness was absolute s*** on that play and he deserves a suspension. Personally, I felt like he was anticipating Dru receiving the pass and decided to lay a hit into him. Boy was he ever wrong.

Any team that does not defend their captain after an illegal head shot like that doesn't deserve to be called a team, IMO. The worst the refs do is give the other team a 2-min PP most of the time.

You've got to wonder where this so called "team" is mentally. All I know is that whoever is named Captain while Dru is gone better act like one and get his players in line with him.

So because a player has the puck and he takes a headshot,that's OK. Those are clean hits then?

The Booth hit has no place in the NHL. If Richards did not get suspended for that hit,why would Glencross get suspended? Because Drury didn't have the puck?

The OHL has a no headshot rule and it's time for the NHL to have the same rule. If you hit the player in the head in any manner regardless of the players having or not having the puck,you get suspended. Case closed.

Seriously, I'm surprised it took someone that long to point out how ****ed up that is. I'm with Balej on this one, what the hell??

And when it comes down to it, the rulebook doesn't determine what's clean or not. That was a dirty hit, and this team should have been furious.

I agree, but It shouldn't matter who got hit last night or if it were by Glencross or Neil, in that situation you have to make the other team pay. In that situation take the two minute penalty just don't let the other team walk all over you. What the Rangers are doing right now is telling other teams in the league that they can be pushed around with little consequence.

Get past the grade school insults and have some respect for people. I can guarantee you that Drury's family, friends, and teammates are worrying about Chris, not about what's going to happen to his cap hit.

Embarrassing, truly embarrassing.

Unless your name is Colton Orr, then it's a major.

Booth got rid of the puck and .3 seconds later M.Richards hit him. We are talking about .3 seconds per Comcast. Not 3 seconds not 2 and not even 1, 0.3 It was a legal devastating hit. Why would NHL suspend M.Richards when he did not do anything illegal?

Drury on the other hand did not even play the puck.

That is how you stand up for your captain.

Embarrassing to watch as a Ranger fan. What a bunch of *******.

I agree that the team needs to start responding whenever Hank gets run...however, the Drury hit didnt really look like much. None of the officials even saw it

+ a game misconduct and suspension for blindsiding and headhunting a defenseless hockey player.

I'm not picking up your point. Are you saying that it's not a cheapshot because the NHL doesn't interpret it as a cheapshot? Or because you simply don't think the hit was that big of a deal.

Exactly. For those of you arguing whether it was legal or not, here's a newsflash - IT DOESN"T MATTER!

When one of your own gets blasted, like Drury did, the team MUST retaliate and send a message. Otherwise, as we've seen with Lundqvist, it becomes a recurring issue.

This team is disgustingly soft, and has been for years. Embarrassing indeed.
