I disagree. I dont think teams are going to give BR an ultimatum. If you're going to make him you're number one target and he seems to be a guy who doesnt like to be smothered/pressured/etc., giving him an ultimatum to sign would be stupid. Why go through an hour or 2 hour presentation just to demand an answer in the end. I would think they'd leave the offer on the table for the rest of the day. And I think that puts the rangers in a position to match.

I agree, Richards is in the drivers seat. No one is going to demand that he make a snap decision. Richards is going to hear as many offers as he can
