GAGline, but I thought everyone here says that Brad Richards is a once in a generation chance to get a star without surrendering assets. Why would GMs all around the league pass on his services unless he was getting paid so much all of them thought it's too much, regardless that he is the only star for years who can be acquired for free?

There are only two ways to look at him: he's a once in a generation UFA or he's not.

1. If he is a once in a lifetime (or at least many years) UFA, then there will be a ridiculous bidding war for him, with other teams in better position to acquire his services because they are closer to winning the Cup.

2. If he's not a very rare UFA, then let's wait until we know our needs after the kids mature.
