You really have to admire the way this team and this board evolve. We sit today, so many people down and out about Brad Richards, talking about the Rangers getting rid of him and replacing him with a much better UFA signing down the road.

There was a time when people talked about Scott Gomez, how he needed to go, and how he would be replaced with a much better UFA signing.

Before that, there was a time when Michael Nylander had to go, and be replaced with a much better UFA signing.

Chris Drury? Matt Cullen? Before that, Bobby Holik, and Eric Lindros, and Petr Nedved? Mark Messier?

If only there was something teams could do to avoid having to fill the most important niche on their roster with overpaid free agents, few of whom rarely live up to expectations . . .
