Yes, for years, not sure why you'd think he's a dirty player. If anything, he's only victim of playing good offense in a dirty system.



Need I say more? I'm pretty sure I recall him trying to spear someone else along the benches last year during our playoff series, was it Carter? Who then ripped his stick out of his hands. Someone had a good gif of it after it happened.

Briere is as dirty as they come.  He fits in well in Philly.

This is an extreme long shot but MA Fleury anyone?

 

I was thinking about that possibility this morning.  It has to be a serious blow to his relationship with the coach and management that he is sitting with no real propsects of getting back into the lineup at this point.  It might be a situation where he needs a change of scenery because he has a ton of talent and shouldn't be this bad.  Not sure what his contract situation is, but I though they re-signed him to a lengthy, big $ deal a few years back and might look to unload him this offseason.

 

This would be a high-risk/high reward type of deals, but I doubt this would be something Lou would even look into if it ever became a possibility.

After this Boston series, would anyone be shocked if Brad Richards was bought out? He's been in doghouse last 5 games. I wouldn't want him in a Devs sweater. I'll bet Torts lobbied hard to get him to NY.
And, I'll bet he's sorry for it.

I think they'll give it a go for another year.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

I heard on the radio yesterday that it will cost the Rags approximately $20 million to buy out Richards, and will cost the Flyers the same for Bryzgalov.  I know those teams print money, but that is still a tough to swallow.  Unfortunately, having 2 amnesty buyouts will end up helping the Rags here.

But that's the thing, it doesn't really 'cost' them anything.  If they're convinced Brad Richards is a 15 minutes a game/2nd PP unit guy, they can probably replace him with the money they save for the duration of his contract.  Even if Richards had been good, the Rangers likely would've eaten it hard with the Cap Recapture Benefit Formula - had Richards retired in 2017, the Rangers would be on the hook for around $2.8M in dead cap space for 6 years.
