"Dru and I really got to know one another, and I love the guy," Tortorella told Newsday. "I think we really bounced him around last year, because the guy will do whatever is asked of him, whatever we need him to do. I want to be able to put him in a more consistent role."
...to me the perfect role for Drury would be the third line center position. Not too much pressure for him to score allowing him to relax and play his game. I'd like to see a rookie (Grachev?) on his line maybe to get him going.
Torts on the younger players...
"The kids were starting to get it, I think," Tortorella said. "[Michael] Del Zotto, Cally [Ryan Callahan] - they had some bumps, and Cally got hurt, but they were getting there. Dubi [Brandon Dubinsky] made terrific strides, but he's got a long way to go."
...the kids are going to be depended on this season to make giant steps forward if this team wants any kind of success. I'm looking at you Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov and Staal.
