Brad Richards?

If/when NYR buys him out (healthy scratch for their gm 4 tonight), do you think LA would have interest at 2-3 yrs 3mil per? Not sure what's happened to him in NY, but LA did have heavy interest before he signed there. Food for thought.

I could see Calgary offering more.

We're also up near the cap drop next year, right? I'd happily take him on a 3 million deal but I can see us getting outbid (again). Would make a pretty nice center depth though...
Kopitar
Richards/Carter
Stoll

Agreed. Was gonna say CGY needs a "#1 center". I put that in quotes because B. Richards has been a joke lately. He looks like such a burnout.

No thanks. Need a winger, not a center.

He's had it.

Why would the Kings do that? All washed up.

Need players under 30 on the rise, not ones older than 30 on the decline.

He is 33, we shouldn't be looking to sign him for more than 2 years at a Gagne type of contract. But I would say he is option B if he is bought out, Clarkson would be my first option if $$$ is right.

I think other clubs would be willing to offer him more. However if he wanted to come here cheap I would welcome him. Would be nice to have him now with Stoll being out.
With such a dramatic fall he must be injured or something.

Lets be honest, Brad Richards is still a great player, he just can't handle playing in NY.

I still think it's funny how everyone was gushing over the NYR roster at the start of the season.

Overrated? I've always thought he was considered a terrible GM.

I have too, but must fans LOVED him prior to this disaster, especially Rags fans.

The Gomez trade was unreal for the Ranger's. I think Sather is good at trading players just sucks at valuating FA's.

I think Sather is doing a pretty good job. He/his owner can afford these contracts and when he can't, he makes chicken soup out of chicken sxit, e.g. Gomez-McDonagh +, Gaborik-Dorsett/Brassard/Moore, or will but them out (Redden and?). The Rangers are drafting above average.

Imo he needs to find first line stuff, either via the draft or shrewd trade for talent, instead of the free agency retirement route.

They are a competitive team. Just needs top talent.

I'd probably do Richards for a year or two.

Lundquist had a rough start but is the second best goalie left in the playoffs behind Quick. If Staal was healthy I think they would have the second best d unit next to the hawks, and lets be honest their forwards should be a lot better than they are playing.
I still think their roster is a top 10 maybe 5 in the league. Either way it is up there.
They need to can Torts as he has been tuned out. Happens with aggressive coach's.

I won't forget the "Are the Rangers unstoppable" thread on the NHL Discussion forum. Some laugh worthy stuff there.

How about we start looking to replace Williams, Brown and Mitchell?

Haven't seen anything to warrant that...unless you're just talking about this series which would be very very shortsighted........

All teams do, that's why there are so many 2-1, 3-2 games. More than 3 and you are a high water mark.

But shouldn't we fix the bottom six as well and focus on more balanced scoring than just focus on 3 players?

Depending on return I have always been on the fence on Williams. No chance I want to move on from Brown.
Seems too harsh too quick to make this statement. We are one year removed from winning it all with these two players as key components.

We really don't. We just need our players with skill to play like they have some.
