Richards Wants to Win in Legit Hockey Market (Updated)

Update, 12:45 p.m.:
Rick Carpiniello at the Rangers Report has a great look at the pros and cons of getting Richards.

Original Post:
Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy posts comments from Brad Richards agent on what the All Star center is looking for when deciding on which franchise to sign with…

“A hockey market with the opportunity to win would be the top two criteria,” said his agent Pat Morris.

Morris adds this…

“First and foremost, when you’ve won a Stanley Cup, you want to win another one. When he choose to go to Dallas, it was a pretty strong franchise at the time until ownership faltered. That didn’t help their team when they were spending $45 million last year and the year before. So it’s been a work in progress — downward in Dallas.

“He wants to have an opportunity to be with a team that has good younger players coming in to fill, in a market where hockey matters game in and game out. He endured what happened in Dallas and in the down-step of Tampa at the time.”

…a team with good young players in a market where hockey matters? Sorry Brad that is the furthest thing from what the New York Rangers are. That sounds exactly like the Buffalo Sabres. Definitely give them a call.
