As for Drury, the team captain, Tortorella said time ran out on waiting for Drury to get his game together offensively.
"I had a very honest conversation with Chris," Tortorella said. "He accepted it and embraced his role. It was a hard conversation for me with Chris because he's done a lot of great things in this League but I have to assess how it's going."
You can't quit, you've got a contract. In theory you can retire but he's too young. He can't be traded or sent down due to his contract or even bought out I believe due to the cap. The only thing I can possibly think of would be Torts stripping him of his captaincy if ANYTHING at all.
