It is tough. On the one hand, Rangers haven't had a skater of Richards caliber since Jagr (I consider his package better then Gaborik, by 1 tier) He is a legitimate talent. On the other hand, Rangers fans saw what giving a contract like what he deserves to Drury. Granted Richards is better then Drury ever was, but Drury wasn't bad at the time he signed either.

As long as there is NO NMC, I would give him the length he wants, as long as he takes a smaller cap hit to do it. 6 years, 36 million would be my ideal. I realize he probably will get more.
