Brooks: When Is Enough, Enough

richardsLarry Brooks of the New York Post responds to the experts who told him this past weekend at the NHL Draft that Brad Richards wants to come to New York and Glen Sather will “blow his brains out” to sign him by stating this…

“For the Rangers to even think of giving Richards the eight years and $50 million to $55 million that apparently will be the starting point of negotiations when the market opens on Friday is so far off the charts, it shouldn’t even be a consideration for a franchise that has been burned over and over and over again on long-term, pricey contracts for free agents who all “wanted to come to New York.”

Don’t read this as an attack on Richards, for he’s not positioning himself any differently than any other player has in dealing with the Rangers. It’s just, when is enough, enough, and especially for a player who has already earned close to $50 million in his career, and has spent the greater part of the last eight months telling friends he wants to play in New York?”

Brooks feels that maybe a $32.5 million over five years front loaded contract with a cap hit of $6.5 is a better option for the Rangers.

…i am officially in love with Larry Brooks. I could not have said it better myself. Oh wait, I have been saying it for months now. Nice to have you on board Larry.

…Richards is an immense talent & will obviously make the Rangers better short term, but for the long term success of this team a long term contract for the former Star center would be a setback for this franchise.
