I don't see how people can hate the Richards signing. The cap hit is good, the term is bad at first glance. When you analyze the years more, you can see that the last 3 years are essentially worthless. Now I've never seen confirmation yet (perhaps I haven't been looking) on a limited or full NMC/NTC. If there is a full NMC, we can buy him out later, but then we're in the same position as Drury, Redden, etc. The contract itself is smart and stupid. It's smart in the sense that we now have roughly a 4-year window to at least compete to win a Stanley Cup. But there's still plenty of work to be done. If these next few years are failures as usual, then we are pissed off from that as is, and will have to deal with ******** regarding Richard's declining production (which is almost assured).

But as a Ranger fan, at least now, you've got to like the deal.
