probably not. I'm for the buyout, only because of the injury risk, but if this wasn't a concern, there isn't a doubt in my mind that Richards would at the very least be the 65p player he was last year, not to mention the good #s he put in post season. He scored alot of big goals last year, and made many great plays. He's getting killed and rightly so, for not staying in game shape, but BR will bounce back as a solid 2C.

It's not an easy decision. Can you honestly convince Lundqvist we're SC caliber team when we release Richards and start next season with Stephan and Brassard as our #1 and 2? good luck....
