There's really no room for him here for the kind of price he's asking for. 5 - 6 mill for an RW who will likely play behind Nash and Zucc? Doesn't make sense. Maybe if one of them could switch wings, but even then, I don't see how the cap could possibly work.

I don't think Cally was the best ever or a disappointment - he was a very good player who rose up the ranks through sheer hard work. He was an entertaining player, and a prototypical example of the era of Ranger hockey that he represented. But, he's gone now and he's not coming back. It is what it is. Listening to his interview, it's kinda crazy to hear him say that he never thought he'd be traded or would leave in FA. Why demand such absurd numbers then?

As for the Richards comments, I don't put too much stock into them. I see a veteran player trying to downplay the loss of the captain more than anything. Probably could have been worded better, but it's not a huge deal.
