It’s not a word that’s thrown around when it comes to sports. It’s a name that’s undoubtedly earned. Chris Drury earned being called clutch, ask any Avalanche fan and they’ll tell you.
Here are some examples as to why no Avs fan will ever hesitate in calling Chris Drury clutch. There are some HUGE playoff goals in here.
If that montage doesn’t bring back some good memories Avs fans, I really don’t know what will. That Forsberg/Drury combination was lethal to the Avalanche’s opposition.
Chris Drury created great memories and brought the Avs faithful, including myself, to our feet many, many times. And it can be argued that the Avs haven’t been quite the same since he left. Many fans will never forgive Pierre Lacroix for trading Drury to the Flames back in October of 2002.
Chris Drury will never have his number hanging in the rafters of Pepsi Center and he won’t be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but those two facts won’t keep Avs fans from having a special place in their hockey hearts for him and his uncanny knack of scoring big goals in big games.
Thanks for the memories Chris Drury. You have always been missed here in The Mile High City for all of the right reasons.
