Rangers sign Brad Richards (9 Years, $6.67M Per)

9 years at $6.5 AaV for Richards and Rangers.



Brad Richards is off the market. The big fish among this year's crop of free agents has reportedly agreed to a nine-year contract Saturday to play for the New York Rangers.

TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting Richards' deal has an average annual value of $6.5 million.


Arguably the biggest prize in free agency is off the market.

Brad Richards has chosen to play with the New York Rangers and will agree to a nine-year deal for $58.5 million.

Great deal, he surely won't stay the full 9 years but gotta love the cap hit, this is awesome

Jumbo* 07-02-2011 10:04 AM

Holy CRAP, what a steal!!!

NYGBleedBlueNYR 07-02-2011 10:05 AM

6.5 is awesome!

Great deal Sather

beastly115 07-02-2011 10:05 AM

**** me, this is a great cap hit.

Hard to imagine Sather getting him to this contract.

we have to give credit on this one they kept the cap hit as far down as they could in this case. Get that man a Cigar!

Now sign RFAs and maybe pull of a doozy of a deal for a LW?

EmDeeZee4MVP 07-02-2011 10:05 AM

WOW! What a deal!

Slats for exec. of the year?

NyRangers88 07-02-2011 10:06 AM

#Rangers. Apparently Richards left some money on the table and took less money to sign in Broadway. #NHL news.

NYGBleedBlueNYR 07-02-2011 10:06 AM

6.33 now? Even better.

I thought it was gonna be 8 mil cuz Toronto could offer that much? #sarcasm tag

mcsauer2738 07-02-2011 10:07 AM

We are legit Stanley Cup contender, I repeat Glenn Sather has built a team capable of winning a stanley cup

h0ckeyman 07-02-2011 10:07 AM

Richards signed in NY for less! What a guy.

UAGoalieGuy 07-02-2011 10:07 AM

Amazing! $6.5 is a great number. That's what the Rangers are paying Redden! hahhaa

BlueshirtBlitz 07-02-2011 10:07 AM

We have our number 1 center! Yesssssssssssssss

BrooklynRangersFan 07-02-2011 10:07 AM


Rangers did exactly what they said they wouldn't do, get into a bidding war and give an excessive deal.
Brooksie = an ass. What would've been a "cheap" deal, Larry?

EDIT: and it turns out it's actually $6.33 AAV?!?!?! That's pretty much down at what I had as the no-brainer level. Go jump in a lake, Brooksie.

Darrelle Lundqvist 07-02-2011 10:09 AM

I'm so happy its less than7 mil. Great job Sather!

Excessive deal?

If the Sabres can give Christian ****ing Erhoff a 10 year deal to get the cap hit to 4 mil, then **** that. Until the CBA ACTUALLY fixes ridiculous contracts, i'm glad Glen utilized it.


NYGBleedBlueNYR 07-02-2011 10:09 AM

WHY CANT NHL NETWORK BREAK IN LIVE? I want some interviews & analysis!!!

Orr Nightmare 07-02-2011 10:09 AM

Here is to looking at a 37 year old piece of ****...great deal...you guys are smoking crack...

He now settled in, cash out and play medicore hockey...you guys are blind...we do the same **** every year and every year you guys love the move...hello Chris Drury part 2.

4 years from now, everyone will be like, why didn't it work...what went wrong..

I wonder who gets a contract offer or traded away now, maybe Sauer, maybe Dubi, maybe Boyle, maybe AA...but who gives a ****...we got our overpaid "superstar".

I wonder how much drive he will have when he is 35 and has collected 40 million from us...maybe he can open up a pizza shop or a fancy resturant...welcome to NYC.

Prove me wrong.

UAGoalieGuy 07-02-2011 10:10 AM

Wait now it's $6.33! Less then Redden is making! hahahaha.

Brooks also said Rangers will have approx $3.5 million in cap space after RFA's are signed.

If Sather can pull off a trade for a scoring LW'er i'd probably die. haha

Stugots 07-02-2011 10:10 AM

NHL.com Headline: Brad-Way Bound. LOL

NYRangers16 07-02-2011 10:10 AM

Woo hoo! 6.5m is awesome!! Updated cap #s please :)

And now I'd like to add a true top LW.

I think I'll order myself a Richards jersey after reading that quote.

HockeyBasedNYC 07-02-2011 10:10 AM

Please give me a second source for the terms because Gross has a 9.5 cap hit.
