He didn't believe in one concussion making a player more at risk for another concussion. Eric had at least 6. Lindros lasted not even 3 months before he got concussed by bumping into Mark Smith in San Jose. It wasn't a hard hit.

Same thing with Richards. According to Slats,Richards was negotiating the CBA and that's why he struggled last season. He attended a few meetings. The last meeting I think he attended was in early December when Bettman and Daly did there "we will die on the hill for 5 years contract term limits". No meetings took place again until New Years Eve and that first week in January. Richards was in PEI for the holidays.

The Rangers are stuck with him for another year and they better hope Richards doesn't suffer an injury which prevents the buyout.
Richards will be given a ~20 game tryout, if he is still the same shell of his former self they will force him to sit out the season.
