No way Richards goes for that much. I can't see Richards bringing more than Hossa did a couple of years ago

I may be overboard but I don't think the Rangers would take Crosby for that, let alone Richards. Those three, as Brooksie says, are essentially under quarantine as far as the trade market goes.

This is negotiation...

It means if Richards goes to NYR...it will probably be for an overpayment, not THAT overpayment, but it'll cost big.

Nieuwendyk get burned in the James Neal trade. So now he's trying to make up for it by fleecing another GM? Puhleeeze. If Sather does that, he should retire immediately.

lol why give up that much when NYR are near the top of the list come July 1st?

Rangers wouldn't make this deal if Richards had 3 yrs left on his contract let alone 1/4 of a season.

It's like if they asked us leafs for Schenn, Kadri and Kulemin for a Richards rental lol.

I'll take my chances in FA thanks

.

I'f I'm Joe N. I ask for the same.

What I end up with is going to be totally different but what's the harm in asking for the sun, moon and stars?

It's all part of the negotiation process.

I'm sure that Sather countered with Richards, Eriksson and Gogo.

That's not going to happen either, but again, it's all part of the process.

No harm at all in what Joey was asking for.

Sather = King of trades

He wont get burnt.

Starting high is one thing, but this is beyond ridiculous. I would just tell him to **** off.

Why do you people get worked up over these things? This isn't something to be taken seriously. You think Nieuwy actually expects to get that in return. This is nothing but posturing in the press for the benefit of the fans and the GM's own reputation.

Nothing to get excited about. No reason to take something like this seriously.

He wants that for UFA Richards, but a player like Neal couldn't fetch Gogo alone.

I'm gonna be honest here, I'm not sure I'd trade Dubinsky for a rented Richards either. I'd easily do it if I had a guarantee Richards would sign though.

I highly, highly doubt Nieuwendyk asked for all three of them. He might have asked for one of them(even that might not happen), but there's no way he seriously thinks he'd get all 3. That would be insane.

I think a lot of people missed the "BELIEVED".

Stop misconstruing the words of a rumor. (I know that is asking a lot on these boards)

I'd ask for the same. Joe still wants to re-sign Richards, so trading him is not his top option. He knows he won't get Staal, Dubinsky, and Stepan, but at the same time he's not going to trade Richards for anything short of an overpayment.

Neal was trading a position of strength for a position of weakness. Richards is not.

If the Rangers trade "Marc Staal, Brandon Dubinsky and Derek Stepan", for Richards as a Rental I would piss on my season tix and mail them back to MSG attn : Mr Dolan. Not Sather, ...but Dolan. Becuase if a move like that went down it all about desperation to make the playoffs and the almighty dollar the playoff run would put in Dolans pocket. But...a deal like that 100% makes this team less of a contender this year, and gets rid of arguably the clubs three best assets.
