Just try and fill Recchi's spot with the best player possible, no matter the age.
PC came out and indicated he wanted veteran leadership to replace Recchi, I think mostly folks are matching available players against what PC indicated his desire was.

This would appear to be a chronic physical issue so I'd have to say pass on the short term deal and money.
You are correct. We went thru this a week or so ago.
His knee is shot. He's done.

Exactly, you cannot buy out an injured player, anyone remember the Glen Murray debacle...

.. the big difference here being that Drury has agreed to the buyout and said outright he won't contest it.

Anyway, like I said in the last thread about Drury, no thanks, the guy's knee is pudding.
