His effort was as eroded as his skills. He deserves all the **** he gets.

Neal isn't there anymore, Brad. There's only Eriksson there to carry you now.

Would really explain why he played like his mind was somewhere else all season.

Terrible article, I especially like the part where he said the Leafs made a "half hearted attempt" to sign Richards. If I recall they went pretty damn hard at him until they realized if they didn't match term he wouldn't sign, and Burke won't do that kind of deal.

The only issue is whether or not the Rangers buy him out. Whether he goes to Dallas or jumps in a lake is irrelevant.

Yeah. That site is not a legitimate news source. Anyone can make a blog and say whatever they want. It doesn't make it remotely true.

Today I learned that the Toronto Star is a blog.

Are you kidding me? The guy was beating himself after every game he didn't perform in and said he was losing sleep over it. What's more likely, that Richards was lying and decided to not give a **** despite his reputation and contract being on the line or that his confidence and athletic ability was down?

He only said that if he is bought out, he would like to return to Dallas. If he is bought out, the Rangers can't sign him or acquire him in any way for a year, so I don't see what's the problem. It's not like the Rangers could or would even want to sign him, so there's no need to feel offended.
The problem is that Richards didn't say anything--there is no direct quote in the newspaper article, just a line that says:
Quote:
The scuttlebutt is Richards was happiest in Dallas and would like to return if new Stars GM Jim Nill is willing
There's no need to feel offended because Richards hasn't said a word to the press, but, in order to get eyeballs on some blog, they find the non-quote and turn into a "he would like" to (leave New York as quickly as possible and return to Dallas)--feel free to spin it anyway you want statement.

The original link was to the blog not the Star. If you took a poll, chances are most of the people never went that far.

Wouldn't it be funny if Richards went to Dallas and Torts got hired as their coach?

What if it was that hit from Kaleta early on in the season coupled with his lack of workout/practice during the lockout? I seriously doubt we woke up everyday saying "time to half ass it."

Would love for him to rebound and work out, would hate to see him go somewhere else and do well, but at the end of the day I guess the cap is what's important.

That's why you're my favorite. Cresty is just mad because I didn't read his 50,000 word essay.

This isn't OT guys, please stay on topic.

I would absolutely love how much Brad would resent the Rangers though. Just to watch him do everything he does carrying this weight on his back.

This "article" really doesn't warrant enough to support a thread. Closed.
