I joke about Crosby being a UFA in 2013... but most of these top players never get to unrestricted free agency. The best we have had in recent years is star European wingers (Gaborik, Hossa, Kovalchuk) with two of those having major question marks, and both Gaborik and Kovalchuk having turned down more lucrative deals already from their host clubs compared to what they got in free agency.
I agree and I think Richards is a very good player but we have the prospect pool to trade away some guys and obtain the players we need.

If you would have told me...trade Del Zotto to Dallas for James Neal, I would have done that in a heartbeat or trade Dan Giradi and Horak for Chris Stewart, I would have done that as well.
