Boogaard is the same as Avery. Boogaard can recover and still play.

Both their salaries can easily be removed from the cap hit.

I herd somewhere that the Rangers can buy out 2/3 rds of Drury's contract because it is the last year.

Wolski should be tradable. Maybe for a mid or low draft pick but still tradable.
You're overlooking the fact that no player can be waived and sent to the minors until training camp--if Sather truly has his hear set on signing Richards, the players/contracts filling up cap sapce have to be off the roster by
July 1st.

Plus, the rule on buyouts is that any team can buy out any player before June 30th at 2/3 the contract value (spread over 2X the number of years left in the contract). I don't think you can buy out an injured player though.
