So you are saying the Kings turn richards around and trade him to the rangers for Gaborik

I just dont see it. I mean.. I am IN NO WAY A NHL GM nor do I claim to be as smart as one (in the NHL knowledge area atleast) but you just made your fans VERY VERY happy with a killer all around player at 26 years old signed for a very long time and for a cap friendly hit. Why turn around and trade him for a injury prone player on a down year offensively? Just doesnt make much sense.

Now if you ask ME if I would trade Gaborik for Richards, I would throw in Kreider or our 15th or 15th and thomas. I LOVE Richards I just am nervous about his partying ways allegedly.
