So, when it becomes over 90% likely the Stars will make the playoffs and thus need Richards, now they become magnanimous ?

Not surprised. They need to make the playoffs and trading him won't help them get there this year.

& thus the dreams of Leaf fans across the Globe are crushed... No but seriously, since when is Bucci a source for solid info.. He's works for friggn espn... & he's a Crosby fanboy.. I respect Crosby's talent, but Bucci defends him every time somebody writes in complaining that 87 is a whiner..

So Dallas will be buyers at deadline? Makes zero sense if Dallas has no intention of paying him in the offseason, why not get something for him while his value is at its peak? Unless they really intend on signing him..?

Was pretty obvious when they re-signed Daley and then made a move for Langs.

Brad Richards probably wants to win. Going to Toronto is detrimental in that regard.

Thank you. Now maybe my fellow Rangers fans will stop this nonsensical speculation.

I know, why not trade him now instead of going for the Cup.

Some teams lose money on an annual basis. In fact a lot of NHL clubs do. Many fans have a hard time grasping this concept. The concept that you can't just loose millions of dollars.

When NHL teams prepare there budgets they often budget for one round of playoff revenue. A 20,000 seat arena brings in 2 million with an average ticket price of $100. Add in concessions, jersey and merchandise, parking and whatever other revenue streams and a single playoff game is responsible for about $3 million. A round or two in the playoffs can bring in serious $$$ to a cash strapped organization.

Precisely why Dallas is a buyer at the deadline. If they can prove this team can make some money maybe someone will buy it from the league after being on the market for a year.

Fans need to wise up and understand money doesn't grow on trees and lots of deals are made nowadays with $$$ being the number 1 factor.

I am shocked by this revealation.

It is pretty clear Dallas thinks they have a chance this year an are going for it, otherwise they would not have acquired Langenbrunner. They are trying to do the same thing that all teams that are caught in this situation do--prove the Richards that they are doing everything they can to build a championship team in efforts to get him to stay.

Dallas has a very good young team, and unless they actually accomplish something in the playoffs (aka not make it past the first round) than the idea of not trading him and getting something back will seem very awe-inspiring.

I think, however, he will wind up on the Rangers eventually anyways

same reason fla didn't trade bouwmeester at the TD before, when you make the playoffs your goal is to compete for the cup, no matter where you're seeded.

In FLA's case, they were 9-10th place in the conference and not ready to give up the chase for 8th. why would dallas go into the playoffs minus their top player?

Losing him in the offseason for zero in return to UFA is just plain dumb.. It's Leaf mentality, Sundin all over again except Richards is still young & would garner more in return than Sundin would have.

Unless ofcourse Dallas has plans to resign him, then it makes tons of sense.

There is a big difference from intending to sign someone to having the financial wherewithall to be able to sign them. Dallas lacks the latter with their front office currently in a state of flux.

how is losing him for nothing any worse than any team trading for him, giving up assets, and then probably losing him aswell?

At least they didn't lose any current assets to land the biggest trade deadline fish

They want to compete THIS year.

would you trade your cars engine for a block of metal if you were planning a road trip this weekend?

I've never understood the fuss. They are obviously a good team, makes no sense to trade him even if they lose him for nothing, they will be saving themselves a ton of cap space for the future. I still think they will re sign him anyways. No team in their position would trade him.

Oh I read perfectly fine. You said they should trade him away and get something for him. Trading away your best player heading into the playoffs when you are trying to win a Stanley Cup /= smart. Sorry.

The Leafs when Sundin was Richards age(30) were, and I know this is hard for you to believe, Stanley Cup contenders as they made it to the ECF twice from 99-02(4 years) and were still solid up until the lockout. You don't trade your best player away when you are contending for a Championship. I am happy knowing my team went for the Cup when it had the chance even if that means going through what is happening now.

Dallas, right now, is in 3rd place in the West. Why in the hell would you trade away your best player heading into the playoffs?? Go for the cup, winning it and taking a chance to win it when you have it, should take precedence over everything else.

Dallas as a team is in a terrible financial situation and needs whatever money it can muster together.

Playoffs = $$$$

Therefore, as a team that NEEDS to make the playoffs for reasons other than pride, Brad Richards will not be traded.

Hockey is a business as well as a sport, jakoff

Dallas does not need to prove to Richards that they are building a championship team, Dallas needs to prove that the ownership situation has been resolved. Team success is not the issue, ownership stability is the main issue for Richards.

Langenbrunner was acquired to help the Stars make the playoffs and succeed in the playoffs. Playoff success equals real money for the creditors and it helps to sell the team.
