#NYRangers captain Chris Drury out four weeks with a broken finger. Blocked a shot in scrimmage today.less than a minute ago via web


...geez tough morning at camp first Yogan now this. Hey Torts get Gaborik and Lundqvist off the ice immediately.

...tough break (no pun intended) for Drury. I'm sure he was looking forward to a bounce back year offensively and this injury is going to set him back a bit.

...got to love that the guy is selling out and blocking shots in a scrimmage.

On the positive side, spot's open for a kid!

tru. plus, whats he going 2 miss? 5 games? At least its not the type of injury that will keep him from conditioning.

Kevin DeLury said...

Yeah, I think Stepan's chances of making the team just increased. For three games anyway.

I think at this point in his career, Drury's main value is in his penalty killing, and hopefully there's someone else who can step up in that regard.

Cmon lets be real now. Although you never want to see anyone get hurt is he really the same player he once was. If you are a knowledgable Ranger fan you are not going to lose slepp over this one. He makes too too too much money for what he give us.

Drury better find a way to stay healthy, because if don't his spot might be gone.

Stephan centering Gabby and Fro opening night here we come!!

chris said...

even though drury was going to play majority of his games at wing, stepan has a great oppurutunity to make the team

Dan W said...

Anon, why would you not care hes not playing bc he makes 6 million? Thats just even more of a waste if hes literally doing nothing. For some reason, the exact opposite applies to Redden and it still makes sense.
