Rangers Haven’t Spoken With Richards About Buyout

The only certainties in life are death, taxes and that Brad Richards will be bought out this summer. Despite a renaissance this season, which saw the 33-year old hit the 20 goal mark for the ninth time in his career, his contract, which still has six years, $6.67M per left, remains an albatross around the Rangers neck. But if the Rangers do intend on amnestying Richards, they’ve...

Richards focused on title for Rangers, not his future

By definition, there is much at stake for every player, every coach and every management person during the playoffs. Careers can be made or derailed. Reputations that will last a lifetime can be established, for better or worse. Jobs can be secured or lost. There is no Ranger with more personally at stake in this tournament than Brad Richards. When the bell rings on Round 1 against...

Rangers spin past Hurricanes, staying strong heading for the Playoffs

In the pursuit of home-ice advantage heading into the playoffs, the Rangers picked up two big points, routing the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 in New York. With two games left, the Rangers look to win out the rest of the season and take that momentum into the post-season. The first period started slow, with the Lundqvist giving up the early goal, but the Rangers rallied back late with...

The Brad Richards Problem for the New York Rangers

Brad Richards was very deserving of the heat he took last season from Rangers fans and the media. He flat out wasn’t good enough and wasn’t physically prepared for an NHL season following the lockout, err I mean work stoppage. Richards had 34 points in 48 games last season, which made him a third line center on a team that needed him to play in the top six. Thankfully, Derick...

Can hard skating Richards rebound?

The Rangers would love the Dallas Stars version of Brad Richards to return. Perhaps the smallest but most intriguing piece of news that has come out of Ranger land in recent days is that of Brad Richards already spending significant time on the ice ahead of the up coming season. Last season Richards wasn’t prepared (at all) for the abbreviated, condensed season and it showed all...

Getting the most out of Brad Richards

Like it or not, they need him. It’s no secret. I was very vocal about using our last compliance buyout on Brad Richards this summer. Rather than run the risk of injury and getting stuck with his cap hit —for what will seem like perpetuity if he does get injured— the Rangers decided to give him one last shot at glory. While I’m disappointed in the decision, I assure you I...
