Wasn't saying they had to. But they could get some assets for sure, I have no doubt.

Our only hope of trading Richards is if Bob Gainey gets a job somewhere. Not other GM would be stupid enough to bring that contract to their team.

Team Benefit Penalty
(2017-18 through 2019-20) $17,000,000 $5,666,667

It would almost be better if he retired earlier if he was traded

feaster liked richards when he was a free agent. he also missed out his "franchise" player when colorado matched the o'reilly offer sheet. maybe calgary would be interested in richards.

richards has a NTC tho right? why in god's name would he waive it to go to calgary?

I vote we send Sather to Ellesmere Island June 30 (without a phone) to frolick with the puffins and fish to his heart's delight. We can pick him up mid-August.

He'll sign whatever scrap is left by that time to a 5 year deal when he comes back.

Oh my GOD has he been awful. I would sit him for the next game.

I am deadly serious when I say that - I saw more (and that only goes to show how little I've seen from Richards) from Newbury when he was in.

Can we get Lindberg over here for Sunday?

Sadly Richards isnt going anywhere. He is one of Torts favorites. Just like Torts job will always be safe Richards will be here even though teh smart thing is too buy him out

Take a traffic cone. Take Brad Richards. Put them on the ice and tell them to race.

Traffic cone wins.

I'd rather have Asham on the powerplay.

Dead serious.

I advocated keeping Brad Richards another season before buying him out but I think you may have to after this season. Can't risk him getting injured next year so that you can't buy him out. It's not even like he's invisible out there, he's a flat out detriment to his line. He kills anything that his line mates have going no matter who it is. His decline is extremely similar to that of Drury after he destroyed his hand and his body started breaking down. Neither player could skate or keep up with the play or even handle a simple pass.

Exactly how I feel. I too wanted him for one more season as a stop-gap for someone like Lindberg.

At this point we might as well just throw Lindberg into the fire and hope he succeeds. I think he will. He's been advertised as good defensively. Much better than what Richards is right now. If Lindberg can come in and have a Stepan-like impact (Stepan's first year) or even just hold down the fort defensively I think we'd be better off than having Richards there taking another roster spot and crippling our cap flexibility for nothing.
