NHL Trade Speculation: 5 Teams That Would Love To Deal for Chris Drury

If there's one thing that the New York Rangers have been famous for in the Glen Sather era, it's bad contracts to aging veterans. 

As of now, the lone contract on the roster that fits this description is that of team captain Chris Drury.  Drury was 31 when he joined the Rangers in 2007 by signing a five-year deal worth $35.25 million.

While he has been a valuable presence in the locker room, Drury has not been the effective shooter he was with the Buffalo Sabres, his team before the Rangers.  With one year and $7.05 million remaining on his contract and the Rangers looking to bring in a top free agent as well as retain some of their own, Drury is extremely expendable after missing most of last season. 

He only played in 24 games due to multiple injuries and only tallied five points (one goal, four assists) all season long.

Despite the fact that he will be 35 next season, Drury could still prove to be valuable in some team's cases.  He is a great leader and can be a great mentor to young squads.  Here are five teams that could use the man they call "McDrury" on their team.
