I would have loved to use the money to trade for a player whose team was in a bit of a pinch like Kyle Clifford from LA.
Yup. I would've wanted no part with a "traditional" UFA replacement for Richards with a 5-year $4-5M/year contract, say a Weiss or Filppula. But if I knew Grabovski could be signed to a 1-year deal I would've sent Richards packing faster than one can blink.
