Honestly, if this article is correct, then the organization is much more idiotic than anyone around here thinks. Thank god these were not hockey moves.
How are they idiotic? Because they reversed their plan. They absolutely were hockey moves. they were never anything else.

Richards and Carter got the term in order to get the friendlier cap hit as well. If anything, Richards and Carter are more justifiable because they are far younger.
Pronger if he breaks down physically, can be placed on LTIR in the later years of his deal. His deal, and the Richards and Carter deals are completely different situations

The premise of the article is absolutely correct.
