It would go a long way towards making Buffalo a desirable destination for UFA's if the Sabres were able to trade for Richards, or his rights, and sign him long term before the start of free agency. A big obstacle the Sabres face with recruiting UFA's is convincing them they're committed to winning. They need to get that first building block in place to show they'll do whatever it takes. The 3 main factors which influence UFA choices are money, location, and perception of the organization. Buffalo can't compete on location, but neither can Detroit.
