Richards & Dubi Could Be Too Expensive

richardsLarry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Brad Richards has no intention of signing for a discount in order to reunite with coach John Tortorella and will be seeking a long-term contract worth a minimum of $7 million per when the free-agent market opens on July 1.

…next.

Brooks says because the price tag is so high the Rangers aren’t likely to trade for his rights before July 1st and are looking into option B.

Those plan Bs could be Jason Spezza, Stephen Weiss or Patrick Sharp.

…of those three, Weiss is the most attractive. Spezza is injury prone and still has four years left at $7 million per and Sharp has just one-year left on his contract meaning Rangers could be given up valuable prospects for a rental.

…as I’ve stated on this blog Weiss is just coming into his prime and at just $3.1 million per over the next two years is very affordable. Rumors say that Weiss, who has a no movement clause, wants to stay in Florida so it may be difficult for the Rangers to trade for him.

Finally, Brooks reports Brandon Dubinsky is seeking a multi-year deal at $4.5 million a year, which Brooks thinks he isn’t going to get.

…here we go again with Dubi.
