A chance to be reunited with his old coach he won the Stanley Cup with?

Richards is in the driver's seat and can control where he goes. Not much we can do about it, sadly.

The Rangers have the money and the attitude to pay him $50 million.

If you objective is to win the Cup, then the Rangers isn't your first choice. If your objective is to win the Cup, then the teams that you would go to aren't going to trade for you anyway (cap concerns)

Honestly, the price for Richards is going to be too high, so I'm fine if we stay out of it. It's not like Dallas will be hot to trade him to us at any price, never mind reasonable. Maybe we can do something with him this off season. But I doubt it.

We lost our chance, most likely, through the draft route when he was moved from TB.

My work schedule is jam-packed today. Of course, all of the appointment are bogus, so I can sit here and watch all of the nothing that will happen today. Expectations are very low.

So if Richards is off the table, I guess Weiss would be the best-available choice at center unless the Avs' GM has a brain fart and makes Stastny available.

Sportsnet is reporting Richards will only waive for the Rangers. Howson is trying to get Liles, but Avs are demanding either Voracek or Brassard and aren't budging.

If it's true, we'll see if they still have the same demands @ 4:00 EST.

No chance that reported rumor is happening.

Liles would be a plus on our d-line but the price is to high if Voracek and Brassard are the bait. Filatov would be ok and add in Commodore and a bag of pucks. I am really willing to see them stand pat and not change the chemistry which really seems to right at the present time. I think they have a chance at the playoffs but even if they don't make it the experience should be invaluable for the future. Richards is just too pricey for the CBJ.

Howson isn't offering Brass or Voracek, the Shermanator is demanding either in return. Richards won't waive for Columbus, price is irrelevent.

It might be different if he had more then one year left on his contract or was going to be a RFA. But I'm not in a hurry to add another smallish defender, with 40 point potential, unless we move Russell and/or Stralman. At least not for Jake. They would have to sweeten the deal for me.

I know that's the rumor going around, but is it confirmed by a GM? If not, let's phrase it properly.

Brass or Jake for Liles is, as the consensus here reflects, laughable.

No- I've heard/seen Dreger, Brad May, Kypreos and Marty McSorley all say Richards will only waive for the Rangers.

I did hear a quote from Nieuwendyk that he will not trade him to a western team.

No one has said he won't waive for Columbus, but the Jackets are in the western conference and are not the Rangers.

Brian Burke is on tv now saying he is trying to get a defenseman today, but will not overpay. He is also shopping Clarke MacArthur, because they haven't agreed to terms, but won't sell cheaply. CMac is an RFA with arbitration rights. No guarantee he will move him.

Burke says it's a good day to sell, the buyers will be overpaying.

Sign me up. I had forgotten (sadly) about him. Had hoped he would be signed here a couple years back when he was FA.
