Realistically, are there any teams with a low cap that would be willing to make a trade for Richards? Obviously they'd have to be able to pay his contract without their ownership having any issues, but is him being traded even a possibility?
All someone has to do is dangle a little candy and Rangers fans go crazy and are ready to pull the trigger on all sorts of deals. Why would the Broons give up on Seguin? Can anyone tell me that? What are the chances of that happening. And they worked pretty hard to get him, nes pa?
Agree. He doesn't exactly go looking for contact either; was somewhat better this year, but still a ways to go. No nasty streak. I don't think the Bruins trade him coming off of a bad year statistically, especially in the playoffs (8 points in 22 games). Still figuring out what kind of offensive player he'll be. They don't want to trade him now, then have him figure it out somewhere else.
Not concerned about a 10 team rumor from FTP. The real stuff has been the frequent rumors about Del Zotto on the block. His perceived value is higher than his actual value, and the Rangers should capitalize on that. Look at what Pitt did with Goligoski.
