i think Richards is a pretty overrated player personally. a good player for sure, but not a player i would go crazy over to get.

to be honest im not really looking for the Rangers to add anyone unless they can somehow swing a deal for Bobby Ryan...other than that im happy with them standing pat and letting the kids grow.

Richards is still a very good player though. Former Conn Smythe winner. He definitely isn't elite but you can't deny his ability. I have a feeling he isn't going to get the type of money he is earning now next offseason. At the age of 30/31, his salary will probably come down to $5M. For that money though, I'm curious how the Rangers will figure out a way to add that to our cap. I guess you can replace Eminger, Prospal, and White for Richards. If all these basement signings (the under $1M we seem to be collecting of late) work out for us, then we might be in good shape.

Richards is a good player. I think Sather will try to sign him in the offseason. Richards is overpaid right now. From what I understand he has a great relationship with Torts. So he probably would want to come here. Hopefully they can sign him for around 5 million. Dubinsky-Richards-Gaborik would make a great top line imo.

who is beyond overpaid. $7.8M these days is just too much for most players. It's not like Richards has consistently been a 90+ point player for the last several years. I don't think he has earned his salary over the last 5 years but if Richards posts another 90+ points this season, then he is a good position to maintain a $7M+ paycheck

for comparison, post lockout (and post TB cup)
Brad Richards $7.8M at 91, 70, 62, 48, 91
Joe Thornton $7.2M at 125, 114, 96, 86, 89
Marc Savard $7M (salary, not cap hit) at 97, 96, 78, 88, 33 (only played half the season)
Scott Gomez $8M salary ($7.357M cap) at 84, 60, 70, 58, 59

Gomez obviously is overpaid but Brad Richards isn't better than Thornton or Savard. He's closer to Patrick Marleau's $6.9M at 86, 78, 48, 71, 83. Richards is overpaid but not "Scott Gomez overpaid." Thornton is probably gonna get somewhere in the $7M-8M range depending on his performance this year and depending on if he wants to stay in SJ and take a "hometown" discount or hit the open market and get teams into a bidding war for his services.

I'm thinking if Richards gets in the
low to mid 70s (points), he'll probably fetch $5.5-5.9M
high 70s to low 80s, $6-6.4M
mid to high 80s, $6.5-6.9M
in the 90s, $7-7.4M

Richards is most certainly better than savard or at least on par. Especially now after savard's massive injuries, I don't think he'll be the same after that concussion.

While I don't think richards is better than thronton, I do think he's a better goal scorer than him, if that counts for anything

I don't know about Richards. He's 30 now. 31 when he's UFA at the end of the season. Giving him a 5 year contract for $7 mil per seems a little reckless. 3 years would be better. I'd be inclined to see where Stepan and Anisimov were at the end of this year before even thinking of committing to that.

Wouldn't want Richards for more than 2 years.

I highly doubt he wants to sign a 2 year deal, hes got his dough, hes going to want term.

Because the Rangers aren't a rebuilding team right? We're Stanley Cup ready.


Let's be honest, acquiring Richards this season really doesn't make any sense.

It's going to cost too much for us to acquire a player who is UFA at the end of the season.

To assume that he's going to re-sign with us is too big of a gamble IMO.

After the season is over, if Sather wants to negotiate with him and try and get him on a fair deal, then so be it.

But for this season it just doesn't make ANY practical sesne as far as where this organization is at right now and what we'd have to give up to obtain him.

his contract not withstanding, richards would be the 2nd best player on this team. easy.

that doesnt mean he would or wouldnt be a wise signing given what he would cost.

he would make us much better however.

just sayin.
