...and if the 32 year old centre is indeed a spent force, you end up with an ugly contract and egg on your face basically in exchange for 1/3 of our top 9 forwards. Jesus Christ, no.

A rich organization like them can afford to buy contracts out even if they are dumped in the minors.

Drury
Gomez

All of those contracts didn't work out. They were lucky Drury retired, and Gomez netted them MacDonag from a drunk GM, but Redden and Richards will be precedents and agents, players will both notice.
I don't think it hurts credibility to get rid of a player when they are not performing.

What happens if you suck at a job?
You get fired. Well, the NHLPA has negotiated some nice "protection" from that. If NY decides to pay them out in full, the player should just know, as long as I'm worth my contract I will stay.

How the heck could Richards expect to be a roster regular if he's netting 20 points and occupying over $6 million in cap space.

We'll give you Matt Gilroy for Colton Orr. Leafs love American college players, Rangers love fourth line fighters who can't reliably play five minutes per night.

Pardon us while we either toast success or cry into millions of dollars of compliance buyout.

So much for "living with the tragic decision".

Horrendous reality for us. I haven't a clue why we're not some miserable group of sad-sacks who haven't seen the playoffs since the first term of the Bush administration.

The leafs offered him more money but he decided to take less to sign with the Rangers.
Still sore?

When he is listed with an *upper body injury* after going head first into the boards, it leads me to believe its a concussion. Sorry for stating it was a concussion.

...and I'm not a Leafs fan so I'm not sore he didn't sign with them

You may want to check your facts. The Leafs offered less money, with less term and Richards decided to go elsewhere. It was as simple as that.

I would not offer anything considerable for him right now. If he truly wanted to play here, then he would have signed here. He didn't and the Leafs have likely moved onto other potential players who can fill that number 1 centre position.

Buy Richards out in the summer of 2014, there is no lingering cap impact.

Let me repeat that.

Buying Brad Richards out in the summer of 2014 would result in no cap hit going forward.

Let me know what part of this you do not understand.

Truth be told, the Rangers are going to give Gaborik, Nash and Richards more than 20 games playing together to see what they can do

It was a lower back injury

Brad Richards is not having a bad year... Hes got 13 points in 20 games and is off to a bad start, but thats not a horrible start... Still better then Bozak, and hes being booed out of town because of it? Imagine what he can do for us when hes on his game... Getting rid of Grabo is a bonus for us to as his contract doesnt fit moving forward, at least Richards is a top line center.

I hate to use caps, but too many people think NY's hands are tied when they are not.
Except all compliance buyouts must be used by Oct 1st 2013. After that, its just a regular buyout where you still carry 1/3 the hit over twice the time. You really want 2.5 million for the next 10 years?

False.

Have to laugh at all the comments about "being stuck" with his contract.

The thought of the Rangers trading Richards ~20 games into his tenure with the team is laughable.

No, he didn't have the greatest start, but he's not alone on that list. Yes, he got hurt (and just by the video evidence, could be out a while), but that doesn't motivate you to change your mind on a player that you gave a lifetime deal to.

Fact is, this just doesn't seem to be the Rangers' year. Brad Richards is out (indefinitely? has a timeline been released?), Marc Staal is out indefinitely. Rick Nash has missed a few games already. A lot of success in the NHL is driven by luck, specifically in your ability to keep key players healthy. In a shortened season, that luck isn't going to have enough time to balance out as equally to all teams. But, they're not going to let a bad luck injury season change the way they're building.

If the Rangers fall out of contention come deadline time, expect them to make insigificant moves which set them up to be in a better position next year.

Lol like when we were trading for Nash and we had ~12mm in cap space, but everyone's like you can't get Nash, how you going to fit him under the cap.
