1. Chris Drury, Rangers
He's had a stellar decade-plus in the NHL, but Drury's massive cap hit - $7.05 million for one more season - has him square in the sights of a Rangers team that needs to pare down costs wherever possible. His career isn't over, but at that price tag, it's almost certainly over in Manhattan.
...Proteau must have put in a lot of time and done hours of research to come up with that #1. ;)
