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.
Eller is not yet a no2 centre.

I say Richards end up signing with the Rangers, thanks to Gainey's idiocy.

Now if I were PG, I would offer the moon to Richards and try to trade Gomez... or just send him to Hamilton.
