You can't trade an injured player, you guys know that right?

If he doesn't accept a trade his name would be **** in the NYR organization, in NY and in certain circles in the NHL... If he wants a career after this he should do the right thing.

This is pretty much an unmitigated disaster the likes of which only a NY franchise could possibly fall into. Jesus Christ. If Dru retires he will be worshipped around here. makes sense for a huge FA signing of this team only in retirement could he get the adulation of the Ranger faithful now.

Of course this is how Drury's time as a Ranger would end.

Does the league regulate buy-outs based on injuries? In other words, does Drury have to pass some kind of physical in order to be bought out tomorrow?

If not I fail to see what the purpose of filing this claim is for Drury. By volunteering that he is injured he puts the team in a terrible position moving forward this summer/next season. Not sure why he just doesn't take the money and move on...

Maybe its Drury's final gift to Ranger fans -- he knows how Sather gets with too much money come free agency and he doesn't want to see the team go down the bad contract road again.

Sure you can. As long as the other team accepts the player it doesn't matter.

So essentially, because Drury is being a selfish ****tard, we can't sign Brad Richards, and are going to get offer-sheeted to hell. We won't have the cap room to keep Dubi and Cally if they both get offer sheets, will we?

Holy ****, this is worst case scenario right here. Chris Drury is ****ing over the whol team.

Callahan and Dubinsky can still be signed. Richards is the only no no possibility.

Everyone needs to take a deep breath.

We were only going to buyout Drury to save $3.33m. If we still want Richards, all we need to do is buyout Wolski to be in the essentially the same position we would've been if we had bought out Drury.

Hopefully Drury doesn't bend us over on this -- because it would be a definite slap in the face considering how much over-value Drury has been paid as a Ranger, but this won't be as big a hindrance to signing Richards as some people seem to think.

EDIT: Also, we could theoretically work out a deal with Prospal/Fedotenko where we agree to terms but don't sign an actual contract until training camp (when Drury will be on LTIR) as to further mitigate the cap problem.

This is happening elsewhere. Florida would like to buy out Olesz but he has a knee injury that will keep that from happening.

A couple of observations...

1. Has anyone besides Brooks confirmed this?

2. The organization was reportedly going to buy out the remainder of Drury's contract, effectively reducing his remaining salary by 1/3, if I understand buyouts correctly.

And we're getting mad at Drury for protecting his own interersts? I don't get that at all.

I don't care if im the only one, but I feel for Drury.

Its always sad to see a classy, hard working, guy have to leave his playing career because of physical issues.

Best of luck to Chris and his family. And what ever Dru does in the future.

Thanks for being a Ranger. And im glad he got to play for his childhood team, the Rangers.

If Wolski is bought out, we can still afford Richards and our RFAs, but that's about it. Sather was keeping Wolski's buyout in his back pocket in case we needed it. Now it looks like we'll need it just to sign Richards, assuming Richards will even sign with us.

So how far exactly are they allowed to go over the cap?

Then later put Drury on Long Term?

May be right on Wolski getting screwed here but I really hope not

It sucks though because I'd have liked another winger for the top line. Sather will have to work some magic before July 1st, I want a good team next year, not one screwed over by some injured idiot.

In what world do you live in where making 33.3 million over 4 full seasons is considered to be screwed over?

Seriously?

Am I the only one who reads between the lines that he will either retire or the Rangers will file grievance.

Either way, Drury and his cap hit will be gone.

I'm with you. I don't see a chance that Sather carries 7 mil in dead space into training camp. The knee jerk reaction to this news is crazy. Personally I think he retires and gets his 4 mill insurance check and the Rangers offer him a job in the front office. Is that too easy?

Drury has made a lot of money and I doubt he's the type of person that would have frittered it all away. The Rangers want to give him 3.33 mil for doing nothing, rather than 5 mil for doing nothing, so that they can afford to sign players to replace him.

By challenging the buyout, Drury is screwing over the organization and the players he supposedly calls friends for 1.67 mil he doesn't need.

And please don't say "you wouldn't pass up 1.67 mil". I'm not a multi-millionare and you don't know me. If I was in Drury's situation, I would not be doing what he's doing.

thats what i'm thinking

this could even end up better for the rangers as they would lose his contract with no cap penalty

He's getting 96% of his contracted 35 million while playing in less than 80% of the contractual term

He's getting over by being bought out. Holding the Rangers up for the extra 1.7 is out and out theivery.

But, we don't know if he's actually going to do that.

If he does, he's a POS.

To be sneaky if they have to be can they not sign up a Dubinsky and Callahan then as soon as they have the space officially list the deals closer to camp?
