i assumed richards was a goner but now i'm thinking he might be kept around this year. hope it works, if it happens.

as for clowe, i just can't fathom him getting more than a three-year deal for any more than three million per. though the intangibles do translate to pay in the nhl...we've seen a few good-lockerroom guys get paid recently. might bump-up clowe's price a bit. but not that much...he'll probably stay in ny, i'm thinking now.

vigneault sounds good for this team. looking forward. in the end, he just seems more modern. i think tortorella's old-school ways are good steps in the evolution of a player and team. but maybe some more nuance is needed. it seems like vigneault maybe makes more of an effort toward finding little advantages in opponents weaknesses. maybe uses some more resource in addressing problems. tortorella seems to be a guy who, like a bulldog, never gives ground, never gives up. which is good if you're picking grapes or peeling potatoes...but maybe this team needs to try some other angles. but a few years of tortorella won't be a bad thing for vancouver either.
