I guess it's a matter of perspective. I didn't think Markus Naslund was an idiot for turning down the $3 mil he was still owed for the final year of his contract and he was a lot more capable of playing that year than Drury looks to be next year and at the same time there is really no question that if Chris can't do a hell of a lot more for us next year than he's done the last two his contract then seriously hampers the Rangers ability to be better. One could question if that's how it turns out just what being a good teammate means to him. At least if that were proved to be the case the money would seem more important to him than the team.

I would hope it doesn't go that far. If he doesn't retire--then he should be bought out. He's made plenty of money. I don't see why that would be such an issue.
