NYR always throw money around like this and it always comes back to bit them. So I have no doubt that in 3 years this contract won't look so hot.

Most likely heavily front-loaded as has become standard practice. Considering Leino got $4.5M/year then this is amazing...

Would've been interesting to see if he had signed earlier yesterday if it would've kept the prices a little lower for some of these guys. 6.5 a year for Richards seems right but I thought he would get more. Seems it wasn't as much of a bidding more but more of where he wanted to be.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

We could have paid him at that price, instead of paying Ericsson.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It's a great deal for the first three years, the following three not so good, the final three is what makes the Rangers the Rangers.

You guys do realize Franzen and Hank are under similar contracts, right?

He wanted to play for Torts again, no surprise there...

If he and Gaborik stay healthy, they could be lethal together...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Hanks the exception as he is a beast. Franzen and Richards are in the same boat though...

I suppose I can take that to an extent.

I just love how everyone on here calls this signing by the rangers dumb and the Franzen signing by Holland as "genius".

Talk about homerism.

I only feel this way because it's the Rags and every big contract they sign never works out!

Drafted within the system and shown to be proven talents here.

People are getting long term contracts without playing a single game with the team.

6.5 ain't bad at all. That's about on par with Pav and Hank, plus inflation. We should've got him (or traded for his bro).

If Richards and Gaborik stay healthy next year they're going to do some damage.
I'm just happy he didn't go to Toronto. Everyone I work with is a leafs fan and were convinced they would land Richards. Monday will be a good day!

You do realise that plenty of people on here regard the Franzen contract as a giant albatross hanging from out necks, and said so at the time it was signed?

Anyway, we were never in the running for Richards.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Yet I'm sure most of them still say, "In Kenny We Trust" before every meal.

9 years @ 6.67 seems to be the official #.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.
