So we either sign Richards for the big $$$, he comes here and he is a success and we have a legit top line, or he falters and we have another big contract that we can't move.

Or we pass up on Richards and continue to struggle offensively until MAYBE a few of our prospects turn into first line players.

Ugh.

Yeah, that's pretty much how it looks. To me, the best option looks like Richards, because this team desperately needs some scoring talent. The over-reliance on Lundquist is astounding, and we're not going to get to the next level without some players that can score/help score goals. At least with Richards you would be getting a guy who's put up numerous PPG seasons, unlike Drury & Gomez.
