Brooks doesn't seem to think they would file a grievance, though that part just seems to be his opinion which is always suspect.

If he officially retires, he doesn't get the $4MM. No one is that magnamanous.

Yea, really sad to see a multi-millionaire retire in his mid 30's. I want to shed a tear for him, but I have a degenerative issue with my tear glands.

Actually this all doesn't make sense to me...how does player insurance work then? Why did Blackburn get like $6 mill for retiring?

It seems like it'd make sense for the players to get paid by insurance if they retire due to injury...that's the whole point of having these insurance deals

Am I the only one who thinks this "if you have money you deserve no sympathy for anything and should never be unhappy about anything ever" attitude we have around here and in society is getting a little played out/ridiculous?

May be right on Wolski getting screwed here but I really hope not
We can go over the cap by 10% during the summer. Redden is already eating up that 10% and then some.

Buying out Drury would save us 3.3 mil against the summer cap and would be enough, together with the cap going up, to allow us to sign Richards. If we buy out Wolski instead, we save the same 3.3 mil.

Putting Drury on LTIR won't help us until the season starts, but would give us a ton of flexibility come the trade deadline.

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.
You could not possibly say you would not do what Drury is doing. You have no idea. People who think athletes owe them something are totally off-base.

That isn't the way I understood it. I could definitely be wrong.

That is the way I took it. Anyone know the answer to this?

If I just made 33.3 million over 4 years, I'd easily give up the 1.7 and allow the team to move forward. Especially the team I'm supposed to be a childhood fan of.

But hey, that's just me.....

I mean, the Blackburn thing was a long while back now and maybe under different circumstances...and maybe it has to do with proving you are retiring because of an injury? I don't really know

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.
I'm just going to totally disagree with this entire opinion.

This is the injury from his arthroscopic knee surgery, right?

Bummer.

Because they probably won't have to file grievance.

Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

Just 3 weeks ago he was in the paper or his agent, saying how Drury thought he had fuel left in the tank to keep playing or some nonsense. Now this comes out that he's too injured to be bought out?

Captain Selfish.

Doesn't sound like Drury is being a stand up guy. He's looking out for his investment. Him. He loses $1,666,667 million in a buyout. That's a lot of pizza. Rafalski retired and gave $6M. Drury will file papers stating his knee prevents from playing so he gets paid and receives the full benefits from an extra year of salary.

I originally thought the same thing, but I thought I was being optimistic.

If Drury gets bought out or retires, then he is responsible for looking for and paying for his medical treatment, whether through his own private insurance or out of pocket. I can only imagine what an insurance policy for a guy with his background would cost, but I'm sure it would be crazy expensive. Not that Drury couldn't afford it, but that's not the point.

By remaining a member of the Rangers organization, he maintains his access to all the Rangers resources. I love all the self-righteous anger over a guy who is clearly just trying to protect himself. You do know that if you get hurt at your job, your company is required to pay you workers comp, right? This is no different.

If im wrong that sucks. But Drury never struck me as the selfish kind of guy he's being portrayed as.

I agree but this is a business...hard to tell what someone will do.

Naslund was classy as hell when he retired to save the Rangers some cap space and that was well outside the norm
