The whole Drury knee injury situation was on the hush hush from the beginning. No mention of any knee injury. Then Torts announced Drury was having his knee drained and was day to day. Drury didn't hurt his knee on any specific play. Torts called it "wear and tear". The knee drain did not solve the issue and had knee surgery. The Rangers never announced what type of surgery Drury had. What's wrong with the knee? The Rangers said Drury would be back within 4-6 weeks. He could play in the last 4 games of the season. Then Sather says Drury is out for the season. Won't return for the playoffs if the Rangers make them. Drury hasn't been around the team at all. You usually read about injured players hanging out with their teammates before and/or after practice.

In the meantime,Sather was looking at taking on money for next season. Souray. Kuba. Penner.

Is Drury's knee injury career threatening? He'll be 35 years old later this year. Broken hand. Concussion. Broke the same finger twice. Knee surgery. Major injuries suffered in the last 22 months.

Injured players can't be waived. To buyout a player,he has to clear waivers. Will Drury be healthy by June? Will he ever be able to play again?

Leaves one option.
