The bottom line IMO is when you sign a player to a contract like that he is supposed to be that ROCK up front on your roster. Like Hank in goal. How often do we ever have a Hank thread going? Not often at all and we probably take him for granted at times. For the money Richie is getting and considering this is the part of his contract we need to be getting full value of his cap hit, the fact that there is even a question of if he's been good enough to keep through our buyout option shows to me he hasn't been good enough. I'm not saying it's in stone that we buy him out, I'm simply saying he should be one of those players who we have good things to say most nights, nothing to say some nights and negative things on a rare occasion. That simply hasn't been the case.
