Everyone please stop acting as if Gomez is stopping us from getting Richards. He isn't. Worst case he is in the minors, the Molsons make more than enough to make that happen.

The reason why we wont get Richards is because of two players, Plekanec and Eller. Pleks is our 1st line center, at worst second.

Where does that leave Eller? 3rd line role for the next 4 years? Jaques Martin would never play him with an offensive player again. If we had a different coach then yes...its possible. Under this coach we won't have 3 skill lines. It just wont happen.
