Apparently, Feaster was worried that Bob Gainey would give up his picks in an attempt to sign his restricted free agent. Feaster thus offered the 7.8mil/5 yrs contract to Richards to keep him before anyone tried to "up the ante".

So, in brief, not only Feaster is a bad negociator, but he is a bit paranoid as well.

Note: It was also mentionned that St-Louis was mad at the prospect of being traded to montreal... thus prompting the comment that he isn't really a fan of the bleu-blanc-rouge...
, bertrand raymond makes no sense
