Brad Richards refused to waive NMC today

Joe Nieuwendyk asked Brad Richards to waive his no-move clause today. Richards declined.

If there is a sticky regarding richards by all means send it there, the forums have been rough today so I made a thread.

Looks like Richards will take his chances on July 1st, don't blame him.

Edit: NMC, my bad folks.

He really has no reason to say no. I guess he doesn't want other teams to get weaker while Dallas would get stronger.

Why would Richards decline though? Why not just accept a trade and not sign with the team he's traded to? At least that way Dallas gets someone for him

I find no possible reason as to why he'd hamper Dallas like that.

He knows this much that Dallas is not re-signing him. He won't be bound to the team acquiring his rights, and can still explore the market on July 1st.

Strange.

He should just waive, I don't see how it hurts him. He knows he's going to FA no matter what, just waive and let Dallas see if they can get anything in return. It's not like you're bound to the team they trade you to.

So much for being all about Dallas if you wont even help them add something before you go.

Because then he would feel an obligation to negotiate with the team.

Apparently, a UFA must think of everybody else other than themselves, all of the time.

It makes no sense to pigeon hole yourself into one team when you have not decided on which team you want to play for.

Waiving makes no sense for Brad Richards.

The only dick in this situation is Dallas for asking

So that he doesn't feel obligated to sign with the team he is traded to?

His agent probably wants a bidding war and thinks it'll hurt if he waives his NMC.

Anyways this is old...

If any team he waived for asked if he would sign, he would say no, and then they wouldn't bother trading. Same deal.

Seems weird. Kinda like giving Dallas the middle finger on his way out.

Could be that he already has an idea of who he wants to play for and has some moral hang-up about leading anyone on when it wouldn't be in good faith. I dunno.

People are still on this?

He was never going to waive, people. He wants to get the most money possible, and I believe it was reported that he would feel pressured to sign with the team that acquired his rights, and thus, he would probably end up with less money.
