I get that it has to be done due to injury risk.

But I absolutely think Richards could be a 60 point player elsewhere next season. Maybe more. Depending on the situation he's put in.

At the same time I also know that if kept he would not do that as a Ranger. Too much pressure, heaviness of the situation, and the looming (inevitable) buyout next summer. Would be tough for anyone to fight through that mentally.

It's best to cut ties. It's unfortunate (to put it mildly). And I have no doubt Richards will flourish elsewhere.

If I'm being realistic, also definitely have some questions about Brassard as a top 6 C over 82 games. He has been GREAT to end the year but his knock has been consistency. Hopefully he turned a corner. Looking like another year in purgatory for the Rangers.
