Rangers News: Chris Drury To Be Bought Out

According to a report from Rangers beat reporter Jesse Spector, Glen Sather intends on buying out Chris Drury when the NHL buyout period opens this off-season. 

From his article

Glen Sather left Wednesday's general managers meeting without addressing the media, but the Daily News has learned the Rangers boss plans to buy out the final season of captain Chris Drury's five-year, $35.25 million contract.

"He's gone," the source said of Drury, who had one goal and four assists this season as he sat out 58 games with finger and knee injuries - more time than he had missed in his 11 previous NHL campaigns combined.

The buyout period is June 15-30, so nothing will be made official until at least the 15th. 

Many within the Rangers media circle suspected this move after breakup day when John Tortorella said "We have to make decisions for what's best for the organization moving on."

Spector goes on to state the Rangers may also look into buying out Wojtek Wolski. Both contractual buyouts would save the Rangers $3.3 million each in cap space. Sather would then have more flexibility to signing all of the Rangers restricted free agents, and even go after an unrestricted free agent like Brad Richards
