Yesterday, Brad Richards was the second-most-popular buyout page on Capgeek.com. He was behind Roberto Luongo but ahead of Rick DiPietro. And DiPietro's buyout is hilarious. Today? He's the number one. Why? Because Brad Richards - who won the 2004 Conn Smythe under Tortorella in Tampa Bay - has been told he is sitting on press row for tonight's game.
In for Richards? Micheal Haley. Or Maybe Kris Newbury. Both of them appear to be replacing Brad Richards and Arron Asham. Asham isn't as much of a surprise as the guy making 12 million dollars this year to play professional hockey. What a surprise for the Rangers, who have never made this mistake before. Just ask Scott Gomez or Chris Drury. Oh, wait.
Anyways, hilariously bad Sather signings aside, Anton Stralman seems to be out because - according to Brooksie - Lucic "broke him in two." In for Stralman?
Jack Edwards' favorite player, Roman Hamrlik!
Of course, the backbone of New York, Henrik Lundqvist, will still play. So it won't be an easy game. But what a show the Rangers are putting on off the ice.
