John Dellapina has “the latest on Tom Renney shaking up the lineup”:http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/rangers/, most notably Chris Drury playing left wing alongside Jaromir Jagr and Brandon Dubinsky.
Also, Ivan Baranka and Greg Moore each make their NHL debuts, with Baranka subbing in for a banged-up Michal Rozsival.
For my story today, I talked to “Drury about his frustration with his lack of production”:http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071121/SPORTS01/711210385/1046/RSS0905. Naturally, this is a move to help address that. But with Martin Straka coming back, my guess is it’s only a short-term solution.
The other part of my story talks about how Drury is still so effective in other facets of the game, and my belief is that the center position maximizes that. He’ll still probably take key draws tonight if the situation requires. But I think it’s a waste to have him on the wing for too long.
