Unless it's some sort of career-ending injury, why wouldn't he want to be bought out?

He could pull a Drury and allow the buyout anyway if it's a small injury. He would probably make more money in the long run.

If he gets bought out after next season, he will receive $1.5MM for the next 12 years of his life from the Rangers, which is a total of $18MM. If he signs with another team for let's say $3MM for three years, that will be a total of $27MM.

I'm sure he'd rather do that than stay on the IR.

I say buy him out after next season.
