I think Brad is here to stay.... But I think this one is more in the hands of AV rather than Sather...

If AV decides that he is a usable piece towards a cup contender team, especially if callahan brings back a top 6 puck-possession style winger, and free agency determines that we cannot afford a center man better than brad, then he sticks...

Rangers are loaded with talent. We've been through a rough 2 seasons since that ECF trip, but this team is not dead like buffalo or Calgary (the fact that we have 8 players going to the Olympics is an indicator of this).

At this point, with clarkson (a horrible winger) getting 5.25M, Callahan asking for $6M+, and guys like Blake wheeler and Dustin brown both getting $5.8M extensions for 20 goals a year, its no wonder Callahan wants 6M.

It is that fact alone that Richards is a bargain, even if we have to pay a year or two with a cap penalty.
