Why should we buyout Richards and then give a a 7 year deal with a similar cap-hit (6.5-7 million/year) to another guy who's nearly 30 whose best days are likely behind him? That's a recipe for disaster. Stastny isn't the answer, the only reason you guys are all trying to justify signing him is because he's the only decent center who will be available.
Rangers are in a tough bind. Richards is too risky to keep around and they need to readdress their first line center position.

Stanstny is what is available.
