I did take the Stars financial situation into consideration.

I assumed that since the Stars offered Richards 6+ million to stay, between Drury and Gilroy, their salary combined next year, actual salary will be 6+ million.

As mentioned previously, the real asset is Kundratek, a solid 3rd rounder that has been developing very well down on the farm.

But if you prefer to lose him for nothing, who am I to argue.

whatever.
If we can spend that much on something that isn't Richards then yes losing him for nothing and using that money on actual good players is far better. This isn't about helping the Stars as much it is about NY dumping a really bad contract.

And no you certainly did not take Dallas' financial situation into account if you think trading them a $5 million dollar 4th line center is a good idea. Teams with limited budgets have to spend their money wisely because once its spent you can't just add more. This deal would severely hamper any efforts by the Stars to improve themselves through free agency. What part of acquiring Chris Drury is wise? Why? So they can get Kundratek, a guy who might develop into a solid 3rd pairing guy? Kundratek isn't worth $6 million dollars.

Gilroy still has wheels.
On another team, could compete as a lower D.
On Rangers, now can only compete as F.
Not worth the qualifying, but I'm ok with half of that on a 1 yr 2 way.

I wouldn't say he's a negative asset.

Redden is a negative asset.
Drury too to a lesser degree because he's vastly overpaid.
