Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
It appears as if the Rangers will be unable to buy out the final season of Chris Drury’s contract because of a degenerative condition in the captain’s left knee that apparently will render him medically unable to play next season, The Post has learned.
While Drury has yet to file the necessary paperwork, sources report he plans to do so. The Rangers, who had been planning a buyout, could file a grievance against Drury, but that is a remote possibility, at best.
Mounting a challenge is problematic on numerous levels, but winning a grievance would cost CEO Jim Dolan approximately $2.7 million in cash, given insurance ramifications.
