I thought Richards would help for a couple of years, but a long contract would cripple us in the future. I was right to some extent about the first part, and luckily the new CBA gave Sather another safety net to bounce Richards in the next two years.
So you're not going to admit that Richards was an integral part to a #1 seed in the East and a trip to the ECF last year?

I agree about everything else. I think hes earmarked for a buyout in the summer of 2014, but the amount of complaining and calling for even more roster turnover is incorrigible right now. When, in the real world, the best course of action is to just hope Richards and Gaborik play to their potentials
