Because you're simply thinking in terms of assets.

The Neal trade should make you realize that Dallas is in financial shambles. Desperate times calls for desperate measures. If they don't have the money to re-sign Richards long term, but want to remain competitive, it's not an unlikely solution.

Also, I would like to point out that Richards was traded for less than that, and still had 2 years left on his contract, whereas he is UFA to be right now.

So seriously? Is your memory that much faulty?

Gomez has negative value, btw...
No duh.

BTW, teams don't think stickly in terms of full value for a player.

NEEDS are the priority, and have to do with a lot more than what's going on on the ice.
