HE believes that Brad Richards being traded for an unproven goalie prospect and a few other spare parts means that Schneider can EASILY return Simon Gagne from our team and that Briere and his contract isn't even close to comparable to B Richards and his contract.
Richards contract is more palatable because there is only 2 years left so I don't know if it would qualify as the worst at this point, but it surely was looking like the worst for a while. I believe he was signed to the max at the time which is insane.

Which lead to them all being overpaid.
