I view Stastny as more of a "grass is greener". He will be more expensive than Richards, plus the cost to waive the Bradster on top of things makes me conclude NY is better off with Richards in the fold. If he continues to train with Saint Louis in the offseason as he did last year I think he can continue to put up points. After all Conn Smythe winners don't grow on trees.
No, you aren't getting it. Buying out Richards has NOTHING to do with who is available to replace him. His contract is the problem. He HAS to go, regardless of what other moves we make.
