If that what it takes for a player to come here, then I probably don't even want him.
devils got in trouble for being too extreme and pushing things too far...those types of deals are still allowed on a smaller scale.

i don't think anyone is suggesting we give richards a 15 year deal like kovalchuk...but the number being tossed around is 7yr, $49 mil ($7 mil/year). would it really be that bad if we make it 8yr, $50 mil ($6.25 mil/year) front loaded so its only $1 mil in the final year?? Richards still gets his $49 mil over 7 years and the extra year gives us a friendly cap hit.
