Update, 9:19 a.m.:
This all may be moot, however, as Larry Brooks, who is usually on the pulse of this stuff, tweets
that Richards is not coming to the Rangers....best thing I've heard all week.
...h/t to reader Kevin T.Original Post:
Arthur Staple at Newsday
reports that Brad Richards' agent, Pat Morris, emailed him that the Dallas center is unwilling to waive his NTC "at this time," though the Stars have asked him to do so.
This means that Richards' rights will not be traded before free agency begins on July 1st....not a big deal for the Rangers as it wasn't expected they were going to make a play for Richards' rights before free agency. Especially after losing two draft picks in the Erixon deal which leaves them without a second or third round pick in this year's draft.
Speaking of Richards, how about this pic
of Sean Avery recruiting the All Star center down in Jamaica during Memorial Day weekend along with Aaron "The People's Champ" Voros......great work Avery, hopefully he talked Richards into taking less money and years. BTW, I thought all the Dallas Stars hated Avery?
...man do I miss the days of Avery and Voros running around Manhattan tweeting about all their escapades.
...h/t to reader Peter G. Can't believe I missed this when tweeted out after Memorial Day.
