    Torts is a moron.  He will be fired in a week.

    This is just plain dumb. Troubles or not, he's not the worst forward they have and still has tremendous upside. Sitting a vet like Richards isn't going to motivate anyone to do better...they're simply learning that their coach doesn't have their back. Torts needs to go. I wouldn't be surprised if they absolutely mail it in tonight.

    I could see both not being with the Rangers next season. Richards should be able to get a nice return.

    Interesting since Richards chose New York in order to play for Torts. Could be a smoke screen by Torts because who does he have to replace Richards skill and experience ? On a different subject , just read where Boyle was upset in game 3 because he lost so many faceoffs, was that against Peverly ? who so many are ready to give away ? Or did Torts line him up against Bergeron intending to let his size help New york ? Glad to see all these uncomfortable issues clouding the Rangers'  ice, as the B's get ready for game 4.

    I could see a buyout happening before a trade. Who would trade for that contract ? It's as "bad" as Luongo's .

    See Scott Gomez to Montreal for proof that it can indeed happen.

    Pierre Gauthier will not be hired as GM by any team soon.

    Edit: ...........or was it Gainey ?

    Honestly I can't recall right away either but the point remains the same. As unlikely as it may be, I could still see some team or another feeling like they could get the old Brad Richards back with just a change of scenery. He only stopped being a point a game player since becoming a Ranger.

    I agree.

    The biggest money on that contract is already paid.  The remaining seven years are 9, 8.5, 8.5, 7, 1, 1, 1.

    A team with cap room, and there are lots of them, could certainly trade for him.

    Struggling to score goals, facing elimination and he is benched? It was stupid to begin with to have him on the 4th line now he's being punished for not producing?

    Torts has outsmarted himself here. Seems to me if you have Richards with Nash you may be able to get the most out of the two of them.

    Trust me, be your own doctor.

    And don't interrupt me, I'm still searching around for null.  It's not like hime not to post for this long.  The Elaine V thing must really have him down.

    That's a possibilty. 

    What I'm hearing from the talking heads of sports radio is that a buyout seems more likely because of the cap going down next year. The list of teams able to trade for a contract that size will be smaller then normal because many have their own salary cap issues.

    Doesn't mean that's whats going to happen, but it's another thought.


    Also not standing in the way of a buyout is the big money NYR have shown that contracts aren't an issue as far as getting rid of players ( Wade Redden ).

    I'm not to confident in that one. It doesn't seem to be working for you.

    Chowdah, I always just assume that some GM or another will take the gamble. Every summer it seems many try to out dumb each other so should I expect this one to be so different?  You make a solid point though.

    Solid gold right there^.  you do know the only reason Elaine doesn't have a job is because Gregory's daddy mandated that the Bruins must win that series. Thats why the B's had all those power plays...wait? what? Bruins had 9 more penalties and outscored them by 17 goals? Oh,   Never mind.
