Richards said he had his eyes set on the Rangers since trade deadline and didn't even consider the other offers. If he wanted New York, why don't just sign with New York instead of renting a building to take offers from teams? He's a diva too I guess.

Jeez, the double standard around here.

Did you see the way he almost winked when he said "tiny rubber fingers"?

I think they're double dealing under a guise of a pet hair removal product.

Well it's reported that Broduer would be ok with a mentoring role, so it might help Crawford a little and I think Chicago needs help in net, but the Devils part is funny especially if Hedberg leaves as well as Parise and Salvador.

So wait its ok for someone established to have a front runner but want to see what other teams offer but when a rookie does it, its wrong? Double standard much?

No, it's called he's a 31 year old Veteran UFA, trying to get the best contract. You do realize that by having other teams come in and pitch offers, it drives up the price.

Schultz is an unproven 2nd round pick who thinks he is the ****ing man. There is no bargaining chip by having all the teams pitch you offers. The ELC max is the ELC max. Just sign where you want, the money is gonna be the same.

You're comparing apples and oranges.

Richards wanted NYR all along, but he used other teams to get the best possible contract from us.

Schultz had no reason to use other teams, the ELC max is set in stone.

Duff was probably a top 25 UFA in this market.

If you can't improve your team, at least you can improve the way they are presented.

I know that. But whatever we offered him would not have been that high if not for the other teams offering money. The Rangers would've loved to sign him for 9 years at 55 million, but no they had to go up to 60 whatever million cuz of the other teams. Then Sather refused to budge on Calgary's offer.

Jets are apparently in on the Parise sweepstakes. Doesn't mean they have a chance, but they're in on it.

Apparently, being around Stan Fischler is all that one needs to qualify to be a "sports archeologist".
