The new CBA makes the Brad Richards contract a bad one, not Brad Richards or the Rangers. The last three years of Brads contract are one million in salary, it was front loaded and worked for both parties. It was the insistence of some owners and guys like Brian Burke that wanted front loaded contracts out of the CBA and to penalize Teams like New Jersey and New York that had them. (Could be part of the reason Mr. Burke was fired from Toronto, immediately after the CBA was signed, for following his own professed beliefs rather than what would have been better for the richest team in the NHL) I know Brad has a full NTC but if he agreed could he go to a team struggling to reach the cap floor, which will soon be rising as well as the cap, or did they close that loophole as well.
