10) RETURN OF CHRIS DRURY Much was made

Much was made of Drury's dramatic, goal-scoring return to the lineup in last weekend's must-win against the Devils. But understand that Drury will not be counted upon to be a key part of the Rangers' offense in the playoffs. This actually benefits everyone. Coach John Tortorella can rely on Drury's locker-room presence (which will help a young team), his face-off winning skills, his top-notch penalty killing and his shot-blocking. And Drury can concentrate on doing those things without feeling the pressure to be an offensive leader, which seemed to overwhelm at times during the past few seasons.
