Brad Richards isn't going anywhere

As reported by the Tampa Tribune, and Spectors Hockey today:

TAMPA TRIBUNE: Erik Erlendson reported yesterday on rumours that have the Lightning trading forward Brad Richards for either Minnesota's Manny Fernandez or Montreal's Jose Theodore, claiming "neither can be taken seriously". Erlendson dismissed reports the Bolts cannot afford to re-sign Richards after forking out hefty long-term deals to Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis or that the club needs a goaltending upgrade. Erlendson cites the impending increase in the salary cap next season, and with Richards making $3 million this season, increasing his salary to $6.5 million isn't that much of a jump. As for the goaltending, he cites the improved performance of their tandem of John Grahame and Sean Burke, going "11-4-1 with a 1.71 goals against average and five shutouts before Monday's game against the Islanders."

Spector's Note: My thanks to "Dave". Great minds think alike, as I've been saying the same thing ever since these rumours about Richards first popped up several weeks ago. As Erlendson noted, you re-sign a player of Richards calibre.
