You have to wonder about Gaborik too. He's stated he's used to having off years and that he's always rebounded, but his body might be breaking down more than we'll ever know.

Best case scenario is that Richards-Gaborik become the new Nicholls-Gartner. When those two clicked, they made the Rangers a very good team and a tough matchup.

Still, I dont think he is worth more than 7.5 and no more than 4 or 5 years.
He'll get more years, less of a cap hit.

Listen, I would love to have Stastny...hes on Richards' talent level and is much younger.

But the cost it would take to get him would make if more of a lateral move. We're talking one of Dubinsky/Callahan/Staal, a top prospect, and a high draft pick to get something like that done.
