I hope Zipay is right but it seems like it is pure speculation on his part. I love how he says that they have exploreD options on the free agent market... I didn't know free agency started yet.

The same way we explore it on a daily basis.

Carpiniello also thinks Richards will be gone. The 11-12 Richards wasn't worth the $12M they paid him. He didn't take any grief because the team was winning. Even Richards felt his play wasn't up to par that season. He made a comment about needing to be better in 12-13 after having a full season under his belt in NY. What happened? So in Vigneault's set-up with 2 scoring lines,a 2 way line and an energy line. If Stepan and Brassard outperform Richards again,where does Richards play? Is he the two way line guy or the energy guy?

Sure if Brass plays like a 2c it would be pointless to keep BR

Dolan and Richards are pals, probably doesn't want him to move away. Should buy him out and let him crash at his place or something.

He's only done it for half a season so not being sold is a good thing imo

It's a financial decision, not the coaches territory.

If he was still performing it wouldn't be a financial decision so therefore AV could want to see if he can fix him.. The coaches always have say

Sather on Richards being a healthy scratch

Quote:
And Sather would not comment on Brad Richards and the team possibly buying out the final seven seasons of his nine-year, $60 million deal. Sather did say the decision to bench Richards for the final two playoff games was not made by Tortorella alone but was “an organizational decision.”
http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/r...ed_tortorella/

Sather told Torts to make Richards a "healthy scratch". They didn't want Richards to get hurt.

I doubt they were worried about injury at that point.

I understand what you're saying, but it's not likely at all. Richards knows the following:

A. If he is not bought out today, he will be bought out next year. There's really no debating that, whether the team wins a cup with him next year of flops
B. That he will be getting a fat multi-million dollar check when he is bought out, in addition to his regular salary next year. Not to mention all the money Richards has accrued over his career. He doesn't have to worry about "playing for a contract"

Having already won a cup, the only thing Richards will be playing for this season (if we keep him) is pride. I had to watch this guy "play for pride" last year and it wasn't pretty. Cut him loose and use the cap space on someone that sucks less and we're already better off

if A happens, the Rangers would have made the smart move to keep him even if he ended up getting hurt next year and not being able to be bought out AND they had a recapture penalty because he retired early.

The fact that it wasn't unanimous is a black mark on this board.

Why do you root for the Rangers?

Serious question. I'm interested in hearing the answer.
I am as well. He wants the whole team flatlined. Most likely dislikes AV. He just recently calling Gorton, Sather's lap dog... Can't stand the 94 team, hates Messier...

he's either 90 years old and a fan of the 1934 rangers team, or not a fan of the team at all.
