What'd be deadly is paying Richards $7.5 mil a year when its become clear Gaborik's going to produce with just about anyone on his line, and that Prospal's on pace for more than a point per game as his center and only makes $1.6 mil a year.

I'm all for bringing in a playmaking center, but I think regardless of how good they are, you place them on your 2nd line. I'm not for breaking up Prospal and Gaborik right now, and if you put Prospal back on the wing and put the new center on the 1st line, you're not changing all that much to produce some secondary scoring.
