What To Do With Ozolinsh

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
If Sandis Ozolinsh, who was placed back to the NHL/NHLPA Substance Abuse Program following his arrest on Tuesday morning in White Plains on DWI charges, remains under care through June 30, the Rangers will be unable to buy out the final season of the defenseman's two-year, $5.5M contract, for he will be considered an injured player. Despite reports on Monday in the 33-year-old defenseman's native Latvia that he had decided to retire from the NHL, Ozolinsh indicated nothing of the sort that day in his postseason meetings with GM Glen Sather and head coach Tom Renney. The Blueshirts could allow Ozolinsh to play in Europe next season once he clears waivers, again, without the contract counting against the cap.
more (reg. req.)...an option as pointed out by Larry is waivers...
