Well, at least not for the next six weeks. Chris Drury will have surgery on his troublesome knee. Here’s the blurb from The Associated Press:
NEW YORK — Rangers captain Chris Drury will have surgery on his left knee and be sidelined for six weeks.
Rangers coach John Tortorella made the announcement of Drury’s injury after practice on Wednesday. Drury sat out the Rangers’ previous two road games because of the troublesome knee that Tortorella said was bothering the center for a couple of weeks.
Drury has played in only 23 of the team’s 56 games this season and has no goals and four assists. The 34-year-old forward broke his left index finger twice, causing him to miss 32 of the first 33 games.
I don’t wish Drury any harm, but I’m not exactly broken up by this news. I might be able to contribute as much on the ice as Drury did. Heck, even Darren Pang could have contributed as much. Anybody disagree with me on this one?
