The Rangers will be a top suitor for Richards this summer if they know what's good for them, and they'll have to trade Rozsival to do so, which is fine. The 2012 free agent class stinks. No center comes even close to Richards' level in 2012. You can get a tolerable replacement for Rozsival at half the cap hit on the free agent market for a year or two. You've got Valentenko coming up, you've got McDonagh coming up.

YEs, we can lose him for nothing and should. He plays key minutes and I'm not willing to take a step back on the blueline. No reason to really, either. Hold him til the deal expires.
