from Jason Brough of Orland Kurtenblog,
Chris Drury is one UFA that hasn’t found a team yet. This is probably because he scored one goal in 24 games last year with the Rangers while taking up $7,050,000 in cap space.
No, it didn’t go well for Drury in New York….
You can also add injuries to the list of reasons potential suitors should be wary. In June, the New York Post reported that Drury had a “degenerative condition” in his left knee that might keep the Rangers from buying him out. But Drury was bought out anyway, which leaves one to conclude that he’s healthy (or at least healthy enough), or that he let the buyout go through because he’d already made enough money off the club and felt pretty bad about it.
For the sake of argument, let’s assume he’s healthy. If he’s not, it’s an easy pass.
Let’s also assume he won’t be too fussy about money, what with having banked a fair bit the last few years. If money’s an issue, it’s another easy pass.
