As such, that package you describe above has no relevance to today.
What Trottier said x1000.

And the Rangers can't 'want' Richards all they want. The Stars are leading their division and are 2nd in the conference. Unless they really start struggling(which is entirely possible), Richards won't be going anywhere.
