Nope, but its pretty necessary to do so in the summer of 2014, even if he has a great season next year.

What drives me batty are the "Oh my GOD get rid of thiz guy!!!" posts with zero perspective or long term thinking. They see a guy struggling and they want him gone...if it were only that simple.

Whether we like it or not, the Rangers are ALWAYS going to have to import their top tier talent. When Richards goes, he will be replaced by another top notch free agent in his late 20's/early 30's.

Its a vicious cycle, yet its the only way the Rangers can address their 1st line.
