What kind of cap hit would that be? I'll check capgeek, but I imagine that minus Roszival and a portion of Drury's salary, we can offer Kovy an attractive contract.
Was actually a thread on this just a couple of weeks ago. After I saw the numbers, it might just be best to wait it out.

CHRIS DRURY BUYOUT FROM CAPGEEK.COM
2010-2011: $1,216,667
2011-2012: $4,216,667
2012-2013: $2,166,667
2013-2014: $2,166,667
Possible? Sure. In the long term it might not be worth it. Really depends on if we move Roszival and/or Redden.

It might make it easier to find a taker for Rosie because his actually salary goes down after this season, but it's the 5M cap hit that concerns me. I don't think any team is willing to take on that kind of hit for the type of player he is.

Exactly why I said that it was most likely speculation. Unless Kovalchuk is juts unhappy playing there, he's going to stay. No team is stupid enough to give up a franchise player like Kovy.
