Jordan was going to sign an extension with the Rangers or Carolina. Those were the two teams bidding for Jordan. He was one year away from group III. Not many teams were giving up significant assets for one year knowing Jordan was going to leave. Its like the Rangers with Richards. Dallas refused to move Richards in the summer of 2010 when the Rangers inquired about him. Dallas know their odds of getting Richards re-signed were a longshot with the flux in ownership. Dallas had a terrific first half in 10-11. Then Richards suffered the concussion and the Stars slumped. Then Nieuwendyk decided he wanted to move Richards and demanded all of the assets from the Rangers. Sather was willing to wait until July. Sather was willing to acquire Richards at the deadline for the right price. Richards had a no move so he controlled the situation. Nieuwendyk lost his job on Saturday. Not very surprising.
