Too bad Richards never said that--he sent an email to post yesterday (saw it last night) denying the rumor.

Brad Richards does not know his fate for next season.

“I would love to be back but I haven’t been told anything,” Richards, who faces the possibility of becoming an amnesty buyout, told The Post in an email yesterday. “That’s the truth.”

There had been a report on Twitter that the 33-year-old center told his caddie — during a Sunday round of golf with Mark Messier — he knew he would be back in New York next season.

“I probably said I would love to be back, but I have no clue,” Richards said. “Mark and I never talked about it.”
The article also claims that the Man Behind the Curtain has made a decision.
