I'd actually rather he goes to Toronto than New York.

Even with Richards the Leafs probably ice an inferior lineup to the Habs and end up at the edge of or barely scraping into the playoffs. New York is a peer to Montreal (although I think Montreal is somewhat better) and adding an impact player might move them ahead of the Habs in the Eastern Conference.

Likewise I'm not concerned if he joins the Lightning because that just improves Tampa where they are already strong (power play and offense) and does nothing for their weaknesses. Plus Tampa was going to be competitive anyway so the balance of power doesn't really shift much.
