FWIW, if Richards gets bought out I see him going back to Dallas or Tampa
Getzlaf is going to sign in Anaheim...

Would have loved to throw 7x8.5 at him and buy out whoever we need to balance the cap.

Best center available to the Leafs is Paul Stastny. He played great when he had good wingers...and Lupul and Kessel are very good.

He's a good playamaker and good defensively, wins more than 50% of his faceoffs but comes with a 6.6M cap hit and he's UFA after next season.
