Players under 26 are bought out at 1/3 instead of 2/3

Rangers save $3.33M next season in cap space.

Maybe then trade Drury for AHL fodder. Drury has a $5M salary next season. Rangers take back another contract(s) matching up the $5M. A team needing leadership. If Drury has a good season,maybe that team flips Drury at the deadline.

Wolski was traded out of Colorado because they didn't think he was worth $4M in arbitration. He signed a 2 year $9.6M contract with Phoenix and they traded him 6 months later. Third team in 10 months. Wolski has been a healthy scratch with the Rangers and barely plays when he does get a uniform.

The Rangers have 6 group II's(including Gilroy)to re-sign,pursue Richards,fill out the roster and leave enough to operate the team next season when there is no bonus cushion.
Definatly buyout Woldski. Drury has a NMC. The only thing we can do is buy him out or leave him on the team. Drury buyout cap hit per capgeek for 2011-12 is $3,716,777.00 Add the 3.3 million saved on Wolski, we would have enough $$ to go out and get Brad Richards. He is worth 7 million a year now but for how many years.

I would give him 6.5 million a year for 4 years. They can up front him some $$ in the first year to make the contract more palatable to Brad. More than that, I pass.
