All im saying is Brad better step up in a big way next season, because the Rangers showed a lot of faith in him with this move.

Part of the problem with Richie is mental. Now hes got even more pressure on him to perform. Not sure if that's smart.

I wonder if the Rangers are using his contract as potential leverage with all of the free agents that are yet to be resigned, including Lundqvist. This could backfire badly, but if they buy him out next summer anyway, we might look back and say that the deals Step ,MCD, Lundqvist etc. got where slightly lower considering Richards hit still being on the roster at the time.
