So does anyone not think it's odd that a guy who's heading to FA and looking to get the best money and long term deal possible is already be telling people that he's made his decision? Kind of a stupid move when you're the top pick of the FA class this season and you'll have a number of teams bidding on you and willing to overpay and hand out a contract that could set you up until retirement. Even if Rangers are his destination, why would he not use his in demand status to counter the Rangers so that he could get the best possible deal for himself?

Maybe his mind is already set on NY, but I highly doubt he's been going around telling people that, especially when his agent is working his PR magic to make other teams feel like they have a chance. If Richards has already made his choice before hearing all the offers, I believe that Richards and his agent are the ONLY people that know this tidbit. Fans here check logic at the door when it suits their cause
