Brad Richards on the block?

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/dregerreport/

Quote:
Sources say Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk is exploring interest in Brad Richards.

The New York Rangers are believed to be among as many as six teams who have recently discussed the star centre's potential availability.

This news doesn't mean Nieuwendyk has decided to trade Richards, who remains sidelined with concussion symptoms, but given the Stars' five-game losing skid and drop to 11th in the conference, trading Richards has become a strong possibility.

The Stars will face the Red Wings in Detroit on Thursday before hosting the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

The outcome of these two games could have significant impact on Nieuwendyk's decision.

On Tuesday, Nieuwendyk said it was "possible" Richards could resume skating in the next few days.

Will Richards really waive for a team that has slim playoff hopes at best?

is anyone else afraid of giving up a lot of assets to aquire a short term rental still out with a concussion? He was supposed to skate on Monday but did not. Now, he is quoted as saying "there is no timetable" as to when he starts to skate.

It would be different if he had 5 years left on his contract but you are only buying his rights for the next couple of months. He might not be 100% during that period.

So what would the Rangers give up?

Del Zotto, Stepan and a pick?

Dubinsky, Anisimov and a pick?

Don't Burke, don't. You don't have the assets and this team isn't ready. If Richards wants to play here; the only way he finds his way is through UFA.

So much for all the Dallas fans that said he would never be traded. Reminds me of the Bruins fans that said Kaberle was **** and how they would never give up Colborne, let alone him and a 1st and 2nd.

My how the tunes change.

We always prefaced everything by saying "if we aren't in the playoffs" when discussing Richards.

we got a lot of good young playes brining in a legit star like Richads would REALLY make that forward goup solid once we signed him.

Lupul-Richards-Kessel

Kuliemin-Grabvoski-Macarthur

I would like to aquire a penner type player or the 1st kine to replace Lupul But Richards would make us Legit

Brad Richards is good, but he's not THAT good. That would gut their team for a rental

It might just be me - but both of those seem to be a TON of value compared to the IK deal last year. I'd think it would be one of guys you mention (Stepan/Ansimov/MDZ) + 1st + good prospect (not listed above or Kreider).

Nieuwendyk was asked on NHL Live ! about possibly trading Richards: ``I've discussed it with some teams. All options are in play here. It's certainly not my first choice, I've maintained all along that we'd like to keep Brad as a Dallas Star for a long period of time. There's a lot of uncertainty with our side as far as ownership that are a concern for them. But, all options are open. It's certainly going to have to be a good type of deal in order to pry him away from us because we are sitting tied for eighth right now and have a lot of home games coming up in March."

most leaf fans don't want Richards any more. he's 31, likely looking for a long-term contract (until he retires), and just suffered a concussion to boot.

they've turned their sights to Paul Stastny instead

Yeah i wouldnt either.

You know, a rich team who has added young prospects and look to be going in the right direction is horrible for a UFA. If he plays well....signs a huge contract. He wont be set for life. cause you know, the leafs dont have fans and once you retire there is no opportunities for big time jobs; using your NHL fame. would be a horrible career move.

I only want the Leafs to get Richards if he comes as a free agent. Otherwise, it isn't worth it.

Neither of your ideas work, because neither Dubinsky nor Stepan will be traded.

Anisimov or Del Zotto? perhaps.

you think the leafs is the only team that offers that opportunity?

other teams that are actual playoff contenders will be willing to toss brad richards the same contract the leafs will

Because exploring offers means they will trade him right?

We've never said he would never be traded, but he won't be traded for something other than a large package, because its no problem to keep him and sign him. People seem to think you can't resign a player after the deadline.

If the Stars have offered him a contract extension which he has turned down well they are better off moving him
