We've beaten the deadhorse on this issue for months on end. Its finally over. But lets show some respect for a hardworking guy who put his heart and soul into this franchise. Unfortunately the writing was on the wall the past couple years as his game just deteriorated. All in all this signing was a bust when you take into account the full spectrum of the deal, but the guy busted his ass and you cant blame him for taking the money and security.

Hes a great guy, I wish him well. Smart move by the Rangers but yet another admission by Sather that he screwed up. Hopefully he has learned from past mistakes. I doubt he has, because now theres another 3 million freed up for Richards to be signed to a whopper.
Well said. Couldn't agree more.
