According to your criteria I'm also allowed to preach now about the drafting of McIlraith, since I was on these boards the very next day disagreeing vehemently with the draft choice. I'm hoping in the long term I turn out to be wrong, but I was against the pick the instant it was announced.
Im no fan of Sather, but you called the amnesty buyout "lucky." I call it calculated.

Richards helping for a couple of years was the plan all along. This teams window is completely done when Lundqvist's play starts slipping.

Its unfortunate that Richards' play has nosedived so far in this short season, but Im not ready to write him off yet as an effective player.
