What's Richter up to?

Never was much of a Rangers fan, but I loved Richter. I still wince every time a goalie takes a shot off the mask.

He's seemed like a really great character guy, good hockey smarts, and he oozed Ranger blue. Does he have a position in the organization, or is he coaching somewhere?

There were some rumblings a while back that he may look to run for Congress in the near future. I think right now he's in school.

The more I thought about it, the more I didn't mind the idea of Richter running for office. I think the idea was for Richter to run for state assemblyman on the Democratic ticket in Westchester or something like that.

I think the most important thing to take away from that is that Richter is both smart enough and genial enough to pretty much do whatever he wants now that he has hung up his pads. I used to hope he'd be the long-term replacement for JD, but now I think that would be limiting for him (not to suggest that a guy like JD isn't very smart nor that he doesn't work hard, but that Mike Richter's interests seem to range far beyond hockey).

Incidentally, I also believe that he is spending some of the free time he has at Yale to serve as assistant coach of their hockey team.

that's pretty much why he is my favorite player ever, first one I truly was a fan of and probably only one ever.. I could root and have a liking to other players but Richter was just the model player/person.. it's also why Gravey is right behind him and both get so much respect

like the poster above said, he's still at Yale.. this is a guy that went to night school at Columbia while he was playing for the Rangers.. nothing but respect

Mike Richter is a volunteer coach for Yale hockey. My good friend's roommate is Yale hockey's starting goalie, Alec Richards. Next time I get up to New Haven, you know I'm going to parlay that connection into a meeting with #35

Sorry to dig up this thread, but I figured it would be better than making a new one. Any way I just read this on Sams blog and thought some people would be intrested in reading it.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) U.S. Rep. Chris Shays was one of the few moderate Republicans to survive a body blow by Democrats in November, but he may soon face a check from retired New York Rangers goalie Mike Richter.

Richter, a 40-year-old Democrat who lives in Guilford, said he expects to make a decision in the next few weeks about whether to run for the Fairfield County seat in 2008.

Ive considered entering public office in some form for a long time, Richter told The Associated Press. Im getting positive responses.*

That's tremendous. I'd transfer to school in CT temporarily to work on his campaign!

I'm actually going to be meeting Hall on Fri. I know that they were both involved in the Clearwater project, I'll ask Hall if his protege's up to anything

My exs Mother lives in Guilford, Conn and baby sat his kids for like 6 months. She says they were the nicest people, we always asked for an auto but her mother refused to ask him, I guess didnt wanna make him uncomfortable. her mother new who he was considering her Daughter I was dating was a huge NYR fan and Beukeboom fan as well.

Pretty weird its a small world.

I think this is a great story. Maybe as a real person, he'll be someone that can help clean up our corrupt federal government. I think that Mike Richter has what it takes to be a politician. It doesn't matter what political party I'm registered under or if I followed him as a huge fan of his during his hockey career, I would be supportive of Mike. Would I vote for him if I lived in Connecticut? It depends on where he stands on the important issues that face the country. Since I don't, I cannot cast a vote for a Fairfield County candidate (should be officially run).

Either way, I wish Mike well and best of luck to him!

The key with Richter is he is going to have NO PROBLEM raising money. That's what makes his future in politics so interesting.
