Tampa did what was best for Tampa, our best players get paid accordingly, and their contracts often make up for being underpaid in the past. Not Tampa's problem if the rest of these guys have a jerk for an agent and/or their teams are being cheap.
Very true. Tampa paid Richards in accordance to how important of a role he plays in the franchise right now.

In that case, Gaborik should get paid close to what Richards is IMO. Not quite what he is asking for, but close.
