In any event, if we buy out Richards, and other teams make a number of compliance buyouts, that puts a glut of formerly highly paid talent on the market. There could be a good deal available in there somewhere, shot term. We got Vinny Prospal so cheap because he was making money off of his buyout.
Why not Vinny L? Ok he hates Torts but...

Anyway, I'd take Vinny L over Brad Richards for sure. Vinny L got alot of raw talent, he doesn't just live on instincts and a shot like BR. But he doesn't have the wheels to be a big star in the NHL without the redline offside. Would help our PP though.
