How about one year at about 3.5 or 4 million?

 

Sometimes players sign one year contracts to prove their worth again.

 

If he has a resurgnce with us more power to him!

Richards can't shut down anybody - a team that signs him should be looking to get him away from top lines and the defensive zone.

Well with Elias and Zubrus on your line it helps. Look at Sykora with them in 2011-2012.

Maybe Elias will actually acknowledge Richards unlike Sykora here....

Sykora got taken off that line late in games once NJ had the depth to do so.  Richards is a center, which means he's even more vital defensively.

But then Sykora got a hug when he was announced as a star of the game

Heard Mike Francesa interviewing Pierre a while ago, was actually interesting.  Pierre said something along the lines of "The post-lockout 2-line pass rule change was killer for Richards, because he has never been a good skater.  Today especially, he just lacks the footspeed to be able to stay in the play."

If that's true, and I generally trust what Pierre says despite him being one of the most awkward individuals I've ever seen, then I don't want to the Devils to go near him.
