This was a good choice. He must feel good about considering he dreamed of playing for the Rangers growing up in Conn. He is a proven winner who has won at every level. Heck, even in Little League. I can't wait to see the reception from the Garden faithful before the home opener.

lol I was just getting ready to post this you beat me to it, I just ordered center ice at like 4 o'clock and was watching the NHL network and saw it. Congrats to Drury, I've been having this feeling like Drury is really going to step it up this season and really help elevate the team. Do we know who got the A's?

Markus Naslund and Scott Gomez will get the As.

Logical choices all around, and not unexpected.

No truth to the rumor that Lauri Korpikoski stormed out of the room when told he wasnt one of the picks.
That was a funny joke based on the previous Rangers Report

Just in case anyone didnt get the joke it was a play on a line about another Ranger player who stormed off and blew off a TV interview when he heard he would not play in the season opener tomorrow.

If the line of Drury/Gomez/Naslund is consistent enough the entire season, i can see Drury matching his career best 37 goals. Here's why:

Gomez is one of the best playmakers in the league. He will open up the ice and look for Drury, mainly in front of the net. Drury is a gritty guy who will play in front and get his rebounds. Some of his goals will not be pretty, but the next morning it all looks the same in the newspapers.

Same goes for Naslund. Although a wing, he is also a playmaker who can score goals and will get his shots on goal. More rebounds for Drury.

Obvious choice. He was the favorite from the start.
