Brad Richards already has it down to one or two teams he wants to play for, he is just looking for extra 2 or 3 million and he uses other 3 teams for that.

"Oh Kings... yeah... I was really impressed by their... powerpoint presentantion and the video of Kobe Bryant! It is true that they offered me 10 million less, but Kobe is Kobe, I am SERIOUSLY considering it. Honestly!"

"Calgary... of course, they won't win anything, but... they offered the same as you. And Feaster is my man! My bro! So that one is really hard to reject..."

The only reason Kings are participating is, because in the end the winner of the race will pay a bit more and have less money for the other signings. It's all a game.
That I disagree with. Dean could just as easily do that over the phone.
