I agree with the article. This franchise has been mismanaged since the (first) lockout.
Idt it was so much as missing out on Richards as it was feeling the need to Pegula-cash-out on a Free agent signing and unfortunately after Richards and Tim Connelly(who Buffalo had run out of town)...there was nothing but risks...
We never had a shot at Richards and we all know it, but given the deep pockets and Cup or nothing mentality we all suddenly got from Pegula we went after a consolation prize....
to be more direct...had those cards fallen this coming offseason at worst our "consolation leino" wouldve been a Zajac type. It was all a circumstance of a crap FA crop.
