Hopefully the NHL does something to ACTUALLY get rid of stupid contracts like this. But as for now i'm glad we have a first line center for a 6.5 million cap hit.

Something like that?

The term is too long, yes. But the hit is reasonable. If this move allows us to become legitimate Cup contenders over the next three or four years, it will prove to be well worth it. After that? Well, if he falls to pieces, we'll again have to extricate ourselves from a tough situation. But that would be worth it if indeed we're contenders for a few years.

So is it 6.33 or 6.5?

AND more importantly...is there a NTC or NMC, and if so, for how long? That is the key question.

Brooksie corrected his earlier tweet and is now saying the same $6.5MM AAV that everyone else is reporting. Still a damn good deal.

As to the term, I'm not a big fan, but honestly, I think every GM in the league is now assuming that ~5 years out these will be corrected/there will be a mechanism for fixing them.

Any word on NMC/NTC...?

WOW. That is an awesome deal for both sides! For a player like Richards, that is a very cap friendly deal. Glen Sather really nailed this one. I can not wait to see Richards in broadway blue. No more excuses, we finally have an elite centerman.

I think it might be front-loaded a little bit more than that.

I really can't get over how shocked I am that Sather didn't give this guy 10 million dollars a year or something stupid like that. This is great! I never thought he'd sign for anything under 7 so hearing that the Rangers were the 3rd highest bidder, I'm a bit surprised. Pleasantly surprised. This is a great deal! First bona fide #1 center this team has had in about 15 years.

Or he retires. People just wanna *****. We became a better team today. Is there risk involved in signing a 31 year old player for 9 years? Of course. But sooner or later, you have to roll the dice.

Can't be too much more front-loaded because of the legality of it.

4 years from now, everyone will be like, why didn't it work...what went wrong..

I wonder who gets a contract offer or traded away now, maybe Sauer, maybe Dubi, maybe Boyle, maybe AA...but who gives a ****...we got our overpaid "superstar".

I wonder how much drive he will have when he is 35 and has collected 40 million from us...maybe he can open up a pizza shop or a fancy resturant...welcome to NYC.

Prove me wrong.

It was inevitable. We've been writing this guy into our lineups for 6 months. Finally we get verified

Please refrain from trolling Leafs or Kings fans.

Not too bad a deal @ 6.33-6.5 if that is accurate. I have to temper my enthusiasm based on pretty much every high priced free agent not playing up to their contracts.

Your just making assumptions. Just because he signed with the Rangers doesn't automatically make him a failure and not have any drive.

So if he accepted the Kings offer for more money, would you be saying the same thing with them? They have a decent track record of signing UFA's. What about Detriot?

The guy took less so the team can keep it's young core and possibly add more pieces to the puzzle. That shows drive in the sense that he wants to win. Not being selfish by taking the biggest deal. If he was looking just for a retirement contract, he would have signed with the highest bidder.

With a deal like that, are those #'s the actual cap hit? Or does the cap hit remain a constant 6.5 throughout the entirety of the contract? I'm confused.
