Is it something with Rangers fans that we all seem to sleep in on Saturdays?

Congrats. Sabres would have loved to have him at that amazing cap hit. For all the bickering between our fanbases, you guys were right, and to the winner goes the spoils. Richards only had eyes for one, and our organization realized that. Again, congrats. Enjoy your shiny new toy.

Brad is such a great guy...all it took was 60 million to get here...now wait for the No movement clause and we will be set.

Thanks!! No warning required, I dealt with the nonsense on the NYR BB for 10+ years, sad to see it go, but the lack of moderation and upkeep was it's eventual downfall...

Thank God. I was hoping for this. Makes me feel a lot better knowing that it happened.

$6.67MM? I'm guessing the original offer was the one first reported and the extra $1.5MM (which pushes it from a $6.5MM to $6.67MM AAV) was the little extra good faith push to get the deal done.

Still can't complain about the cap hit. Given the path that this team has chosen to take since they hired Torts, they are actually executing very well overall. Disciplined, consistent, focused. Not thrilled with some of the moves along the way (drafting McI last year, signing Boogie [RIP] and trading Grachev), but can't argue that they're adhering to their plan.

Anyway, was obviously joking and congrats.

Very good signing, as long as the terms aren't a killer, which I doubt that they are(fingers crossed) now this team can move in the right direction and the kids aren't under the gun to perform and can progress under the right expectations.
Welcome to the concrete jungle Richards.
