At this point--looking for positives to take from all of this.

Richards appears to be healthy which means the Rangers can buy him out. Whether that happens or not we'll see but it's quite obvious that the Rangers aren't legit and that he's too old and not nearly the point per game player as advertised and there are 6 years left on his toxic contract. I don't think the Rangers are going to make the next step with him. They've been pretty much let down by their key forwards (in terms of contract and pedigree)--Nash, St. Louis, Richards.

Richards leaves this summer and Nash as trade bait at the draft? Anaheim has Ottawa's first rounder--#10 overall. Trade Nash for the pick and a young player/prospect--preferably a forward. Anaheim could use another shooter IMO. St. Louis has one more year on his current contract. He'll be playing for his next one and if he doesn't do well--then he's done too.
