That is 15 years of the salary of 140K a year if you reverse tax withholdings.
-How much does his restaurant business pull in?
-Does he plan on working in hockey in another facet?
-How financially secure is his family already, to the extent that uprooting their kids and relocating again is worth the compensation for another year of a modest salary?

Depending on what teams are interested in his limited services, Drury continuing his hockey career is not as much of a "sure thing" as you might think.
