The center struggled through a final injury-plagued season with New York that limited him to 24 games. He returned for the final regular-season game and scored his lone goal in a win over New Jersey that helped the Rangers clinch a playoff spot on the last day.
Analysis: Drury was let go by the Rangers in late June after a largely disappointing four seasons, including three as captain. Drury was given $3.333 million for the buyout that closed the five-year, $35.25 million deal he signed with New York after leaving Buffalo as a free agent in 2007. Drury was a Stanley Cup champion in 2001 with the Avalanche, but his winning ways go much further back when he led Trumbull, Conn. to the 1989 Little League World Series title.

Drury will be given $3.333 million for the buyout that closes the five-year, $35.25 million deal he signed with the Rangers after leaving Buffalo as a free agent in 2007.
Analysis: The buyout will leave the Rangers with a salary-cap hit of $3.717 million next season and $1.667 the following season, under the current collective bargaining agreement with the NHL and the players' association. That agreement is in effect for one more season.
