Agreed. It's a business and if Ritchie plays well, he'll have an easier time finding a new, lucrative, contract. Not buying him out this past offseason works for him and works for the Rangers. If the Rangers bought him out, he might be playing for 1m because no one wanted to take a chance on him. Look at Brendan Morrow.
