Was thinking they were going to split the difference in the 2.4 to 3.0 in differing salary demands. Around 2.6 seems right. Good deal.

Actually, this is how second contracts are supposed to work.

It's funny that Slats is one of the only sane GMs when it comes to RFA contracts.

Good deal for the ranger, pretty reasonable IMO.

For all the hell Glen gets for his UFA track-record (and deservedly so), the man knows how to work trades and RFA negotiations. Nice deal.

I really hope MDZ gets a better D partner than Stu Bickel. I'm drooling thinking about an MDZ-Matt Greene 3rd pairing. What would the Kings want?

A lot more than we'd want to give up.

WOW. That is a really, really good deal for the Rangers.

Much cheaper than everyone thought, and he'll still be restricted at the end of this deal.

Anyone who finds something wrong with this deal is just jealous and probably bad at hiding it.

This is a great deal for the rangers. I really thought he was going to get 3.5-4.25 over 2-3 years.

He's definitely worth more than this, based on market value.

Amen to that.

Positive:

- Really good at trades
- Signs RFA's cheap, really good at handling those bridge contracts


Negative:

- Sucks a** at signing UFA's. Ends up overpaying big time most of the time. At least he flipped one of them for McD .

The downside to the deal is that it's up at the same time Callahan and Lundqvist's deals are up (and Gaborik's deal but they may be more willing to let him walk since he'll be approaching his mid 30's at that point). More guys to sign in one year puts a little more pressure on

The Gaborik deal, while high in cap hit, has turned out to be decent.

The Richards deal is still too early to tell, he signed a long term deal that could come back to bite the Rangers at some point.

Depends.

Richards deal goes down to $1m in actual pay the last 3years of the deal with a cap hit of $6.6m.

With the type of heady game he plays he could still hypotheticaly be a productive player in a 2nd/3rd line capacity to a small market team looking to fill cap space without having to pay the actual dollars. And if NYR wins a couple Cups in the mean time or ECF appearences that would make him atractive to small market teams looking for leadership as they tend to be perpetually rebuilding with youth constantly out of need.

Only time will tell what the legacy of teh Sather/Richards contract.

But based on the player Richards is, you can see the risk is not as high as some of the past head scratchers we've seen.

When Richards' salary becomes $1MM, he will be 37 years old and have already made about $104MM. If he retires in the off-season leading up to that year, which is very possible, his cap hit will be $5.67MM for 3 years. That doesn't sound good at all.
