Rangers Fire John Davidson, Jeff Gorton; Drury Named President & GM

Recommended Posts




Assistant GM Chris Drury is believed to be the leading candidate to fill the post of GM while Dolan conducts a hunt for a president that is expected to have Mark Messier at the top of the wish list.


Drury has been part of the Blueshirts’ management team for six years and an assistant GM for five. The next GM will make the decision on the fate of head coach David Quinn, who has two years remaining on his contract.


But a divergence of philosophies emerged between Dolan and the Davidson-Gorton ticket, with sources indicating that the CEO believes that it is time to take the next step in this process while the front office people have continued to preach patience and a longer-view panoramic take of situation.


As well, it is believed that the hockey hierarchy’s collection of skill players at the expense of will players did not sit well with Dolan. The recent mismatches against the Islanders highlighted the team’s deficiencies in grit and leadership and may have accelerated, if not prompted, this stunning decision.

1) How could that statement possibly be released without one of the two of them approving it?

2) Even if it was, why wouldn't they retract it immediately? Unless it was Dolan himself who ordered it.

3) They just brought JD in, there has to be more to this than one stupid statement.


Not saying they were doing a perfect job but I am a bit disappointed- I did like the direction of the team.





WFAN ::… Dolan put out yesterday statement.JD Gorton we’re agents it and wanted no part and we’re fired
