He got Richards as a UFA but he won't be able to trade him given the costs and the way Torts acted.
So it is either a compliance buy-out or trading Torts.
Not sure if these are arguments against Sather?

IMO the Richards and Bryz moves were awful. The Hartnell & Timmonen, Carter and Pronger moves were great. Like I said, a fearless approach, resulting in some embarassment, but has generally resulted in a successful franchise. Both the Flyers and Rangers have done some crazy things and have remained contenders in a division with the luckiest (Crosby & Malkin) team in the league.
