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?
I disagree with this. I think Dallas made a good trade getting Goligoski. I know I am the only one, but I think he is a gonna be a great PMD for years to come. Only 9points behind Neal this year, so I don't think the Neal trade was based only on finances, pretty good trade imo. They traded for a need by dealing from a position of strength. I'm not seeing the fleecing everyone else is.
