If Drury returns, he could help Rangers on draws

Faceoffs play a much more important role in the playoffs, so the idea has merit. The $7M does not enter into the equation, we have to pay it anyway. (("we"! lol)
Early in the season I was concerned about drury returning and disrupting the chemistry and leadership that had emerged in his absence. That diisruption never materialized in the games that he played, and even though he was largely ineffective, he DID win faceoffs, and Torts kept his ice down to a minimum and inserted him for key draws. I would expect he'd be used the same way in the playoffs if he were to return. That could theoretically be helpful.
I have serious doubts about him be ABLE to return because of injuries and conditioning. If we were to make it to late 2nd round or ECF, odds increase that he makes an appearance. JMHO
