Since there are questions about Dallas' player payroll budget in the near term due to their owner's cash flow issues and Richards' impending UFA status, I wouldn't say it's realistic for the Stars to expect to have Richards in 2011-12.

Richards would fill a huge need for the Sabres, IMO.

But, I'm not expecting him to land here for a variety of reasons.

Richards is going to be the #1 UFA on the market. I just can't see the #1 UFA to land in Buffalo regardless of who owns the team and who the GM is.
