I think he just has 1 year left on his contract after this year. He signed a 4 year deal. His first year with the Sabres was 2003-2004. His second year was the lockout (counted as a year on the contract). This is his 3rd year, meaning he has one year left.
Well I'll be damned, your right, 4 year deal. I thought it was a 5 year deal. Either way I doubt he's on the outs. Unless Lindy is dying to give Timmy C. the 2nd line role. Even if he is, Drury can play wing well.
