Unrelated question. How did Erixson get traded to NYR? Doesn't the trade window open after the SCF?

I answered the PM as saying the trade freeze ends after the regular season ends - just that any players moved can't be used in the playoffs, but I'll put it here so someone can verify that.

This is how I understand it, too.

Thanks for the info, folks. That makes much more sense.

What a shame: Bobby Mac says that Dallas won't be tendering a contract offer to Brad Richards. He'd have to waive his NMC for Dallas to trade his rights.

Cue the Rangers...again?

I don't normally think players owe it to their team to waive their NMC, but this is an exception. I hope he gives them an opportunity to get what they can for negotiating rights.

All he'll give them is a nice warm glass of shut the hell up.

When he gets off the phone you can call and ask.

Well he's clearly smoking something when he makes contract offers (see: Redden)

Dallas and Stars fans get screwed. Richards' injury prevented a trade pretty much and now he will walk for nothing (not his fault though).

You should read some of the comments from the Leaf fans on other sites re: Richards.

As far as they are concerned... he will definitely be a Leaf.

Ha. He very well could end up in Toronto, but Leaf fans aren't exactly known for having both feet on the ground when it comes to speculating about the team.

I could see him signing a 5 year, 5.5 million deal to be 2nd line C in Detroit. Heck, they lose the Rafalski contract, Kronwall's ready anyway, fill in the gaps a bit and Detroit's literally locked and loaded for a long, long time.

Richards? In Detroit? For $5.5M? It's been said he could get $7-8M easily.

Yeah he can get 7, I guess it depends on what he wants to do. If he signs a 6 year contract, that's a lot of money he'd leave on the table - unless it's a Canadian city where that extra is eaten up in tax I believe. So he can go to the Rangers for 7 or to Detroit for 6, does he take the extra money and the great city or does he take the less amount to be on what would be a tremendous opportunity to compete for the Cup for a long time?

The problem with Detroit is that they have some holes in their lineup that need filling, besides a 2nd line C. Rafalski is gone, and Lidstrom will retire or come back...coming back would likely cost Detroit $5-$6M. If he retires, Detroit has big gaping holes on their blue-line that need filling (they only have 3 D on contract for next year). Kronwall becomes a FA after next year, and will get a raise over his $3M.

The good news for DET is that their top forwards are all already signed through next year. They need to sign about 8 guys for next year, with projected cap space at $18.5M. That equals about $2.3M per player. If you figure that their Rafalski/Lidstrom replacements will eat up, let's say, $8M, that leaves $10.5M for 6 guys, or $1.75M per player. That doesn't leave a lot of room for a Richards signing at $5-6Mish.

I don't think Detroit is prepared to make that kind of splash.
