Yeah, and Gomez was on the good side of 30 when the deal happened and Gainey lost his job. Deal's like that are the exception, not the norm.
If the argument is that of "fit" Gomez not fitting is at least slightly convincing, Richards' "fit" is not credible. He's playing in the system with the coach that he won a Stanley Cup. It's not like he's being asked to reinvent the wheel. And other GMs will note that. When we targeted Richards there was no issue of "fit." Any efforts to deal him will be a concession that his skills are in rapid decline, not that it's a square peg in a round hole, and that will greatly impact the value we receive back.
