Here is an idea. Clear cap space. KEEP THE CAP SPACE, tank a few seasons and GET SOME HIGH DRAFT PICKS. Next years draft is supposed to be a good one allegedly.
And do what with all this cap space? Put it in the bank, and save it for a rainy day? It took me a long time to jump on the Richards bandwagon. The team IS rebuilt. It has 2 -- literally, 2 holes it needs to fill. Richards fills both those holes.

If Gaborik played like himself, or Callahan was healthy, we very well could have advanced passed the Caps. You throw Richards in the mix, add another years experience to our rookies and young core, and you have a true competitor.

You people need to get away from this "rebuild" fantasy. It doesn't guarantee success. NEITHER DOES USING THE CAPS LOCK KEY TO PROVE A POINT.
