Im 50/50 on Richards. Part of me says, get the guy, Gaborik needs a center and we need a PP QB, but another part of me says a 6 or 7 year deal at 6-7 mill spells trouble along with his injury concerns.

I don't know lol.
To me Richards won't bring us a Cup, but he guarantees more middle of the pack mediocrity. Exactly the direction we want to avoid. A franchise is going in the right direction if they're either on top, or on the bottom going towards the top. The Rangers are in the middle traveling horizontally. That gets you absolutely nowhere, and Richards will only worsen that.
