Not sure why people are mad about this. I think Richards is extremely underrated and plays well at both ends of the ice. Sure there's a log jam of forwards/centers but I think it's a good problem to have and opens up the ability for trades.
Besides the fact it's a one year deal and we have the cap space. Why just let the money sit there for a year?
Because that's what we do in this forum. We trash talk and play armchair GM. Today couldn't have gone much better. I love the signings. Green took a big discount and Richards is a $3 million player. He also took a discount last year since he was paid big on the prior contract with the Rangers. Other than trading Ericcsson to clear space for one of our young defensemen, I'm happy. B+ Grade Kenny Holland.
