4 most of the season, I've felt the Stars wouldn't move UFA Brad Richards. That feeling is changing. I now think he goes 2 highest bidder.

The highest bidder that Richards accepts to go to - why do people act like his NTC doesn't exist? His NTC WILL effect the return if he is asked to waive.

There. That's what he said. He never said he WAS coming here, but it's pretty different than Steve Simmons' sensationalist garbage passed off as journalism "he's just not coming here because I say he said so". But this might be too difficult to wrap your head around, if so, my sincerest apologies, continue watching the Sens or Canucks and huffing glue or whatever it is those fanbases do to pass the time.


In the meantime please, fans of other hockey teams. Steve Simmons is a joke of the Toronto sports media, please do not pass off his bloggy spewage for the truth.
Ohhhh. So when you said "Dream destination" you were lying. Got ya.


And no, me and the majority of TO fans get along just fine. The ones who don't make things up that is.

I knew Joe Newey was an overrated idiot GM when he was trying his best to dump a premiere puckmover like Ribeiro for nothing, this only proves it.

I hope the Habs dump Gomez for Richards, but it's obviously a pipedream.

This is the first time I've seen a team decide to tank well holding onto a playoff spot.

Last summer he skated at the Lightning's practice facility in Brandon before training camp began, as he has every summer since being traded from Tampa. I know because I saw him, a lot.

How exactly are the Stars tanking?

Richards is still on the Stars roster, albeit slightly woozy and unable to return quite yet. He's given no indication whatsoever that he wants to leave town, and GM Joe Nieuwendyk hasn't given any word that Richards is being shopped.

Yes, the Stars are still (barely) holding on to a playoff spot.

Today's trade addressed a glaring need on the blueline; fixing this will hopefully get the Stars realigned, so to speak.

Stamkos already has a 3.725 cap hit already, so thats just another 3.5 or so and we have 8.5 free now. Its possible.

The Toronto media jumped all over this statement. Some of us knew all along that he wouldn't sign here. Others have yet to accept the reality of the situation.
Youtube is not embedding for me for some reason. Was going to post the dumb and dumber clip, "So, you're telling me there's a chance".

Probably, except that the Stars' top line is probably about to receive an upgrade on LW: Jamie Benn.

Benn - Richards - Eriksson
