If either of these trades took place a few years ago, it would have been the right time, especially the latter of the two...
I didn't declare Richter a Flyer. I reported that a source--a team owner, by the way--had told me that the Flyers were preparing to offer Richter a contract. On the larger scale, when I report that the Rangers are interested in a player, or talking to a team about acquiring a player, that doesn't mean the trade (or signing) is assured. I think the only time I've ever characterized a trade as being imminent was the three-way for Keith Tkachuk a few years ago...and it was until Carolina owner Peter Karmanos killed the deal that would have featured Tkachuk, Petr Nedved and Keith Primeau.
new york, new york: Do you give any credence about the rumor of Tkachuk and Khabibulin being traded to the Rangers for Fleury, Richter, and there two top prospects.

Kevin Allen: I learned long ago that anything is possible in the nhl and that where there is smoke there is usually a potential bonfire. I wouldn't do that if i was phoenix.
