Good Luck Richie!

Ah well. I guess LA wanted someone under team control for several years. Plus the fact we couldn't offer a legit backup goalie back probably played a part in it. Kudos to Homer for having the guts to walk away rather than overpay.

We won't resign him after next season. It's the same situation we were in with RJ Umberger.
Situations are kinda different. With Umberger we had a logjam at center (Richards/Briere/Carter and Giroux on the way). At wing, Read has a legit top 6 role for the foreseeable future. I also don't see it being that big a struggle to resign Read. Timonen/Mez both off the books next offseason gives 10 million to play with. Schenn probably wont get a big bump in caphit.
