I have no doubt that someone see's something there, I just don't know if I agree with it.

Richter almost made a team that ended up finishing out of the playoffs. And we have to be careful with the almosts because there are a lot of "almost" NHL players out there.

Again I just don't see what he brings to the table for a team that is supposed to be getting better. Maybe on a team like the Rangers were last year, but this is a year where there are some good options to compliment the wave of kids who debuted last season.

As funny as it sounds that year makes a difference.
