Rangers to Buy out Drury and Avery?

Usually I wouldn't post Eklund's crap but this actually makes sense espically if as speculated they plan to go after Richards the extra cap space would be a huge in helping them land him.

and if they did buy them out where do you think Avery and Deuey could land?

he also talks about the rangers listening to offers on amisonov (sp?)

hes just stating already discussed information. i'd imagine the rangers might hold off on avery. his cap hit isnt an albatross at 1.9m and hes very good friends with brad richards.

as for the anisimov thing, schoenfeld said we want to get an "elite" player through trade. if ur going to do that u have to give up assets so eklund is throwing his idea out there and hoping he's right.

Again, it's Eklund speculating, per usual.

Oh, and Wolski would probably be bought out before Avery. It costs much less.

I can see LA having interest in Drury. Lombardi tried to sign him as an UFA years ago and with Handzus likely not back, LA could use Drury as a PK and faceoff guy. Plus Smyth is gone after 2011-12 so adding a vet like Drury may not be bad, for the right price-CHEAP

I could see Atlanta throwing there hat in for any of those players in particularly Anisimov and Avery.

I would actually love to see Klingberg - Cormier - Avery line would be dangerous

I think they are more likely to be buried. I don't think NY is worried about the money, where buying them out will count against the cap.

Again - Drury cannot be buried. He has a NMC, which would prevent reassignment to the AHL. Avery, on the other hand, doesn't. But really - would YOU want a disgruntled Sean Avery around your prospects?

Well Eklund must be reading the rangers board and he must have seen schoenfelds comment that, "you have a 21-22 year old center pair him with a 1st round pick and you may receive elite talent towards the end of their contract."

I don't think they will. I think most teams, if they have a bad contract on the roster with multiple years left are better to just go into this final season with that player until the new CBA is hammered out.

One of the things that the owners might be looking to get is a lower buyout rate for contracts. Let the player's keep their guaranteed deals, but lower the buyout rate to 1/3 or 40% of the remaining value of the deal. I mean, 2/3 for not living up to expectations.....

Actually, it's Eklund recycling old news that was previously reported about two weeks ago by several of the NY media sources and selling it on his website as some inside information he just uncovered.

Wouldn't that mean Avery could be paid by 3 teams if he's signed by someone else?

I doubt they buy-out both though. That's a hell of a lot of cap room taken for years to come on buy-outs.

I'm sure that the Hawks would be interested in Drury. Depends on the $$

I'm fairly confident that if NYR buyout Avery, they have to buyout his entire contract. Just like any team that trades for him gets his full contract, not just what NYR are paying for him.

It makes it really unfeasible for him to be on the move.

Can the Hawks afford him? Or are you talking about a deadline deal?

He's saying if he was an FA after being bought out.

Eklund must have a time machine that he uses to generate his rumors.

Unfortunately, rather than going forward in time to tell us what will happen, he decided to go back two weeks and tell us what was rumored by legitimate sources then!

The buyout for Avery would be the same as any other buyout, but the Rangers and Stars divide Avery's buyout evenly.

Quote:
Because Avery was acquired off reentry waivers, the "buyout" and "buyout cap hit" columns appearing below are split between the waiving and claiming team.
Sean Avery buyout from CapGeek.com
2011-12: $1,208,333
2012-13: $1,333,333

Divide each buyout by two.

No it's not, and it's only for 1 extra year. Both Avery and Drury's contracts expire at the end of this year, if they were bought out, the Rangers would save like $6-8 million this year, at the expense of $2-3 million next year. That's a pretty fair consequence.

No, but the buy out will effect both, the Rangers and Stars (actually be doing the Stars a favor - lowering actual salary hit of $2mil to $2/3mil) and helping the Stars to be able to resign Brad Richards!

I guess he's been reading the Rangers forum and other people's information and recanting it as his own. This guy is trash. Besides it doesn't make sense to buyout Drury or Avery, only Wolski and he'd state that if he had any original thought.

Drury it makes sense for, and Eklund obviously didn't have to think too long or hard about it. Avery on the other hand makes little sense. He is friends with a UFA that they want badly. He is among the top pests in the league, and he has some skill for a bottom six player. There is no reason to move him at all, let alone buy him out. Unless he is still hated in the locker room of course.

wait, so EKLUND SAYS we will buy out drury and avery and THAT MAKES SENSE AND HE MAKES MONEY FOR THIS, yet EVERY rangers fan has said the same thing and basically torts said the same TYPE of thing in his exit speech.

WHY does Eklund make sense and why do people pay for this ****. Its in EVERY NEWSPAPER IN NEW YORK since they bowed the hell out of the playoffs.

I am NOT bashing the OP. Please dont take it that way. I just cant understand why people EVEN VISIT THE DAMN SITE. I didnt come in here to see what eklund had to say. But to type this in HOPES some of you guys STOP VISITING HIS SITE.

If he keeps getting hits on his site, sponsors will want to pay him to have their name up there since they can generate some business because all you dopes keep hitting his site up.

I rather come on HERE in THIS SECTION to read about rumors before I would hit that jackass'es website

I dont see LA wanting him NOW. Back when he was a Free Agent? Sure. At the "right price" not at the albatross amount the Rangers paid him. He would have been a good target. Good locker room guy. Big team guy. Willing to do ANYTHING the coach wants him to do for the betterment of the "team".

But now? He is washed up. I hate to say that. Yes he CAN score that big goal (look, he came back early to help the rangers even MAKE the playoffs with that big goal of his in game 82!) but a guy that pots lets say 8 GOALS A YEAR is not really worth it. But hey, you want to trade for him, BE MY GUESS. We will take back a 7th rounder and anyone with a cap hit of 2 mill or under.

I didnt know Avery was a BIG FRIEND OF RICHARDS. Now THAT is something that makes Avery WELL WORTH staying on this team for.

If HE can land us Richards, he was worth his weight in GOLD!
