Exactly why I think we should have waited to do anything until the "talk-to-FA period" and see if we could get Ribeiro or Lecavalier or maybe even someone lesser like Weiss or Filppula to agree to a deal and if they did then we could buy out Richards and we would have our replacement. Would have loved to replace Richards with Ribeiro who would have a shorter term contract.
