I don't care what some people here say, I never lost any respect for Chris Drury. Guy wanted to play, and it's too bad he can't. Chris Drury was tougher than anyone on this board, and before his injury troubles, he was a guy I'd take on my team any day of the week.

**** Glen Sather for signing him to a contract that is going to result in a lot of people putting a black mark on Chris Drury's record of success.

As much as I am angry that he leached us for re buyout money, the guy had a great career and I hope he does well in his future endeavors

Chris Drury has known he would be retiring for several weeks...had a great career who delivered when it mattered. #NHL #Clutch

How does Strickland define "several"?

Drury soaked the Rangers for an extra $3.33M instead of retiring in June. Then he retire 4 weeks before training camps begin.

Do we still owe the cap hit next season?

The Rangers should be allowed to grieve the buyout. So should any other team that's in this position. Stupid rule.

Does his buyout cap hit still count against our salary cap? I would imagine it doesn't. Do we save anything from this?

Great career, just couldn't pull it together and was plagued by injuries. It's a shame, but I'll still miss him in Ranger blue, not for his contract, but for what he brought to the team. He was a good captain and a good player.

Good, hope we never have to hear about this guy again...he hosed the Rangers for 4 years and when he could have helped out and retired and saved us the cap space he decided the 30 million we already gave him wasn't enough.

Redden and Drury two of the top five worst moves all time by the Rangers

Did the Rangers announce Naslund's retirement on their site or did the PA announce it?

It still counts against the cap.

This I agree on, if this can be appealed to the league it would be great.

I do not agree with the inevitable "Greedy Drury" posts that will be forthcoming. As many have posted, he would've gotten paid either way, he went the buyout route b/c he legitimately thought he could give it a shot at playing this upcoming season. Obviously it didn't pan out.

We'll always be disappointed in his production here, but he had a career most NHL'ers would kill for, tip of the hat to him.

What about next years (2012-2013) hit from the buy-out? Is that still in effect?

No idea how any Rangers fans can say anything nice about him. Screw Drury. He knew he was retiring and killed the team he supposedly loved as a child with his cap hit that he would have gotten anyway through insurance.

Little league world series title. Hobey Baker. Calder Trophy. Olympic Silver. Stanley Cup.

Say what you will about his time with the Rangers, but the guy was a gamer and a winner. Helluva career.
