maybe if this wasnt the worst free agent class in my lifetime would i be cool with that.
but it is....
give him 1 more year, unless we have plans for some trades or something and need the space right now.
LTIR won't help us when he retires 3 years before his contract is up.
Some of you guys just don't get it. This decision has nothing to do with the coach. This is 100% on Sather and the rest of the front office.
If not for the change to the amnesty rules, Redden would have spent this season on his couch, because the Rangers weren't going to risk him getting hurt and them not being able to buy him out. Why does anyone believe that it will be any different with Richards?
Richards will get bought out this summer. Period. End o' story.
