I have a feeling Toronto will sign him 5 year, $40 million. And if he doesn't get $8 mil from Toronto, he'll get it from Buffalo.

If that ends up being the price for Richards, he can go to one of those teams.

I'd rather throw $3 mil at Connolly on a multi-year deal and another $3-4 at Erik Cole, Jussi Jokinen, or Simon Gagne. I'm not saying that Connolly is the answer to our problems, but I think he can put up 50-60 points and help our PP.

I'll probably be bashed for my post, and that's fine, but I've had enough of the crazy contracts being handed out to UFAs. I stayed positive with the Gomez and Drury signings; I was very excited to see both sign. Overall though, both were huge disasters, and we were lucky enough to get something for Gomez. Redden was terrible. Gaborik has been the only bright spot, but the fact that he's made out of glass is nerve-wracking. If he doesn't have a bounce back year, the fans will be calling for his head.
