Just for the sake of arguing, as I agree Richards needs to go, what if he regains his 2004 playoff form and the rangers make a serious run for the cup??? What then? Still buy him out!?

I don't think he deserves the money either he has basically been a shadow of his former self, I just worry that Rangers brass might decide to keep him
Will Richards truly be bought out? I'm not so sure, I really have felt he has been a real solid piece this season. I know it is more about the long term but I am not sure a buyout is in the cards anymore. You absolutely need veteran leadership on a team and with the amount of 4-5 million$ contracts being handed out to guys who score less than 50 pts a season, I'm not sure if buyouts like this will be such a fad.. Plus what does buying out Richards send as a message to future UFAs who might want to sign in NYC?? Might
@mando24179 Dumbest comment ever posted on this blog!!! you actually believe that his worth lies in his ability to drop his gloves and fight a guy with a minute left in a game we need to secure two points on the road... common bro use ur head!!

@KevinTheNYRBlog @andrewstamant29 hahahamy bad.. what a dumbass lol I was replying to the Stewart comments post
Comments section seems messed up, I can't anything beyond the last 10 comments! kinda defeats the purpose.. All I can say is that anyone saying the Rangers are stupid for resigning Girardi because he is a "pussy" is an idiot.. he brings way more to the table and you probably never played hockey if you actually believe a defender/s worth is in his ability to fight and take himself off the ice for 5 minutes...kinda pointless debate.. some people say dumb shit I guess.
@IcyCup That is not the point. The point is that responding there in a way some are suggesting woul dbe just irresponsible
Sorry to disagree with most of you but here are the facts, Burrows is a classless asshole who laid a violent (legal) hit on McD out of frustration. some would see the Rangers getting fired up possibly Girardi dropping the gloves (maybe getting his ass handed to him breaking a hand etc.. on top of that the Rangers end up with a penaty down 6 on 4 with a faceoff in their zone two top defenders out of the game, Kesler has dominated on faceoffs and the anucks are desperate and would probably be fired up with momentum from the crowd, possibly score in the first 10 seconds then we have to go into protect the lead mode (we all saw agains the blackhawks in Feb that is is possible to get a quality scoring chance with 11 seconds left, let alone 39).. Is that what we prefer?
Im a Canadian boy and grew up playing hockey and fighting ans physical play have always been in my blood and I love it, however this team won the game, were on the road, ended up with 2 points and didnt risk Lundy getting involved or force him to play another 49 seconds with 3 guys swarming him.. This team did the right thing by not responding. They will make the playoffs and they didnt even play into Tort's shananigans (believe me he wanted somone torun McDP) and they added insult to injury by solidifying their position in 2cnd and bitch slapping the nucks into no playoff territory.. So please shut up with the lack of a response.. especially since there actually was a scrum it was simply a small one and was quickly broken up..
Class goes further than you think in this league and I am happy to say my team and coach have it.. otherwise go be a fuckin Flyers fan, you'll get your response along with a first round exit and another failed season!
