With the possible distraction that the media could conjure with this, do you see the need for Richards to be extended by the time next season starts, if he is indeed the man, as judged by Jarmo? I don't think this is enough time, even through next season, if you're going to have an active GM from a trades standpoint, which is what I expect. Too much is unknown, and a new GM equates to housecleaning more often than not.

This would be much easier to decipher if Richards was in year one of the standard 3 year deal for head coaches. I'd place all my money into him being fired before the contract expires or before any serious extension talks take place.
