I suppose you'd consider that a wise investment?
I would consider it wise.
The Richards deal is fine. That team is a Cup contender thanks to him (Richards has been the hottest player since March, I believe). Not like they put an asterisk on the Cup if his contract is bad in a couple years. And if New York can shed Gomez, Drury, and Redden - they'll work out any issues with Richards. That trio of terrible deals didn't stop the Rangers from landing Gaborik and Richards the minute they hit free agency or retaining any of their home grown players.
The Richards deal will only help the Rangers.
