as someone said above, I don't want to get Richards because we had the highest bid. If Calgary or Toronto want to offer the farm for him so be it. It might really be in the best interest of the rangers to pass if the bid becomes another contractual liability.
The thing that makes me nervous is that...well, look at that team in L.A. They look awfully good right now without Brad. With B. Richards...yikes. Pretty scary. Of course...I don't know what their cap situation is like. Gotta be tight no?
I will admit, that this is the first time that I am admittedly nervous about the possibility of losing him.
I still think he will be ours but now with a tinge of doubt.
Uh oh you shouldn't have let doubt creep in another hour of this and you'll be pulling out your hair.
I have remained fairly unbiased throughout this whole thing starting at the trade deadline. I would have liked him then at the right price, but wasn't upset that Sather showed restraint. Same situation now. Worried about the team next year if we don't get some upgrades on the top line though.
I never thought the Rangers would have the highest offer, still confident.
Yeah. I mean, if I were in his spot I would just sign where I want to play the most. He's going to be beyond rich no matter what. I'd gladly sacrifice $10 million (or whatever) to play where I want to play if I were him. I wouldn't never let that percentage of my income dictate my decision.
