I also think DL will really go after him. I see Richards as having all the traits that DL thinks a King should have. He went pretty hard after Kovy, for sure, but not all out. He did go
hard after Hossa, we just got beat by a team that was much more ready to compete than we were. I feel that the Kings have shown they are very close to being contenders, and with a healthy Kopi and Richards, they would be expected to win a round or two minimum.
The thing with the NYR is they have been known to throw stupid money around. With money being equal, from his interviews I think Richards would pick LA. The Rangers are solid, but with the Kings back end the addition of Richards would make them a legitimate threat for the cup.
We just have to hope that Sather doesn't have a bout of insanity and offer $8M.
