Why would TB even want to do that?

Ugh. Kinda makes me wistful for the days when the Wings could get in some of the "power" trades.

If Montreal did that they would be a bunch of dumb ass's. Ryder is just as good as Richards and Hainsey is one of their best prospects not to mention a draft pick.....give me a break. This is just a rumor, nothing more.

I agree it wouldn't be wise for Montreal to make this move, but from Tampa's end moving Richards is probably a good idea. He's going to want Lecavalier/St. Louis money next year when he becomes UFA and TB's already got all that money locked up so... might as well trade him and get some younger, cheaper talent.

or they could ride the team chemistry that they had to another run for the cup. Don't get me wrong Ryder is a very good winger, but they have been able to make things work with Richards. Ryder is just going to want they same kind of money a few years later and you don't know wether he will fit in.

So they'd have Koivu, Ribeiro, Bonk, and now Richards? I don't think they'd want to be that stacked at center, unless they're planning to move either Koivu or Ribeiro, because we all know how well those two get along.

I don't buy this at all. Why would Tampa want to trade away one of their top players, and the guy that was the MVP of the playoffs in '04? Makes no sense. UNLESS they have no room for him?

How do they "have no room for him"? He's under contract, they're not over the cap. He's a RFA next summer, and will sign for at least one year after that..he's not going anywhere for at least 2 years, if at all.

They just must want more room, I guess looking into the future and realizing they will have to drop some people, they thought they could get more for Richards now, rather than losing him in Free Agency.

Bolts Will Keep Richards

In addition, the source is CBC radio, which is apparently on strike at the moment and not filing any new stories - hence a rumor with no truth behind it.

I wouldn't want to trade away the reigning Conn Smythe trophy winner.

I don't think Richards or Ryder could be pulled away from their teams. And that "arrticle" said they would announce it formaly on the 29th...it's the 30th!
