2: Torts
3: No training camp
4: Gaborik not playing well
5: PP sucked
6: Everyone has an off year

I don't agree with any of those but Sather isn't about to own up to a mistake until he absolutely has to.
Using Richards contract on the books as leverage in negotiating all of the upcoming free agents they want to resign or extend....

From a business perspective I think that makes sense but it could also backfire in the Rangers faces. This a risky move, with higher risk than reward if you break it down IMO.
