5 years, $35.25 million

That's what Chris Drury accepted to join the New York Rangers a few minutes ago. The deal isn't outrageously more than what the Sabres had offered their former co-captain and two-way star to stick around. They initially proposed five years and $30 million.

Do you think Drury would have worked with the Sabres' numbers had they not lowballed Daniel Briere?

The announcement Drury was in the fold came moments after the Rangers had landed Scott Gomez, indicative of Drury's enthusiasm for what he could accomplish in Manhattan as opposed to HSBC Arena.
