Obviously, it's human nature to hear what we want to hear, but the bold-faced reference sounded encouraging IMO in that, by everyone's account, Richards is considered the stand-out free agent this summer above everyone else. Black's reference to it seemed to suggest that either he's aware of the talk/speculation surrounding Richards at the moment and/or the Sabres have been talking internally about possible plans to go after him.
Little overboard on that one I think, 'tip

He was probably just speaking in generalities... like the Great White Buffalo.
