Melodramatic much, or just misinformed? The propaganda machine that is HF Boards has really driven home the point that Gomez and Drury are completely worthless. I'm very comfortable with my belief that NHL execs do not feel the same way. There are plenty of teams that would love to have Drury, like it or not. Him being overpaid by a couple of million dollars certainly decreases his value a bit, but not to the point where you couldn't give him away.

Really? Drury's got heart, character and skill. He's like the anti-Heatley. I would take him, but it would cost the Rangers more than they'd be willing to pay, I'm sure of it.

Heatley should be forced into sitting out the year without pay like Yashin.

We couldnt find the right deal for you, so either put up and shut up, or stay home and wait, till we do find the right deal.

No way Ottawa wants Drury when they have Fisher at 3 million cheaper

No, actually it doesn't. He only has 3 years left on his deal. It isn't the albatross you're making it out to be. Any team trading for him will keep him for at least 1 year, leaving 2 years at 8 and 5 mil.

Or you can keep Heatley, a player who obviously won't be happy if he isn't traded and as a result likely won't perform to his contract either, at a 7.5 mil cap hit for the next 5 years.

Please don't dish out points for this, I Just have to say something.

Why in the world do you people keep quoting this man? He is wrong every single time. Every single time. He has never, I repeat, never had one of his out there rumours stick.

So why do you keep posting his stuff and saying "OMG, this culd happen!"

It's not real. It's not a real rumour, and chances are, Murray is not taking back another huge contract - especially for a guy who can't perform at Heatley's level, in a trade.

He's actually already been told that he'll be playing for the Sens next year if Murray can't find the right deal.

The Sens have no leadership. If they do this they have Leadership

Plus is Spezza, Drury not a great 1-2 punch?

I would also think the Rangers could move Zherdev in the deal which would make it better for Ottawa

Rangers could then Resign Antropov with the money saved

So Drury ,Zherdev for Heatley.............oh wait that whole no trade clause thing Drury has, bahh

Fisher, Kelly, and Picard for Drury... gives you guys some damn depth, and makes us... more top heavy?

What do you expect? Its Eklund for crying out loud. He's trying to draw more people to his site. Everyone is interested in seeing where Heatley is going and the Rangers have a huge fan base. Sounds like a ploy just to get people on his site.

He also pointed out the obvious though. It doesn't take a hockey expert to figure out that Sather isn't trying to shop Gomez, Roszival, Redden and Drury. They already had reports that he tried shopping Redden and no one wanted him (obviously). ESPN announced weeks ago that Sather made Gomez available to the league.

I wouldn't take Eklund serious at all.

EDIT: Drury also has a NMC and I don't see him leaving his favorite childhood team to go to Ottawa. Not knocking Ottawa, it just seems very unlikely.

I love these arguments....Drury is a proven winner. Yeah, when he played with Sakic, Forsberg and Roy. So is Steven Reinprecht, Martin Skoula and a host of other players. He's a character guy, in fact he has so much character that the team felt the need to bring in Sean Avery to shake things up a bit. He's the captain, who couldn't lead the Rags past the second round. But I am sure when you trade him to Ottawa he will be just what they need.

You don't pay a character guy $7M per season. If you want character, go sign Chelios for near the league minimum.

I love the cap...stops teams like the rangers from just getting everyone by overpaying, they wanted drury and gomez two years ago, blew other teams chances to get them...gave them huge contracts, now they can live with them.

The article stated that. But why don't you go ahead and find Burke's quote on his lust for Redden?

You could certainly trade Drury, as there are many players in the league with negative trade values. But I don't think he gets picked up if you put him on waivers, but he gets 29 bids if you put him on re-entry waivers. A fair contract would be $5-$5.5 for Drury, so he is at least $1 mil overpaid.

Heatley, on the other hand, would get picked up if we put him on waivers (though not 29 bids). His UFA price would be well above $8 mil. If we trade you a good contract for a bad one, we need sweetener. And the NYR have 2 sweeteners, Lundqvist and Staal. If you are shipping us Drury, we need one of those 2 players back to compensate.

Unless Ottawa is blown away, I can't see Heatley playing for anyone else but Ottawa in the east next year. Chris Drury isn't blowing anyone away, that's for sure.

What do you think?

I feel Gomez + Heatley = Magic...even though I'm a Flyers fan.
There has probably been over 50 articles the past 3 years how the Rangers were offering young players for vets. None were true. Sather has not traded any talented prospects. I seriously doubt he's looking to trade his captain. Media people love to make up Rangers news with nothing to back it up because fans believe it and it sells papers. Sather hates the media and doesn't tell them anything. So you can be sure that if Sather does something, nobody will get the scoop on it.

It's just such a lot to ask for - and you know if Murray's trading inter conference, the price is a little higher.

I doubt this happens.

Although, apparently Burke has mild interest in Redden, so this could be more serious than we all think.

Can Drury play LW? If so i'd do that first deal...but Sather probably wouldn't or would he....? He likes big contracts!

Drury + Anisimov + Grachev/1st for Heatley

You know, if I recorded you saying that out loud, and played it back for you, you'd say "Hey, this guy sounds like an idiot."

You have to be kidding, man. I know you're smarter than that. Henrik Lundqvist is worth your entire franchise.
