And Richards was a ridiculously long contract for an injury-prone guy (just wait, his concussions are coming in spades). I'd still argue they overpaid for him, but hey, it's NYR *cough* Redden *cough* Gomez *cough* Drury *cough*. I guess Richards at least might try to compete for them.
Expect LA to be KILLER in the next 2-3 seasons. They got some of the best deals of this year's FA joke and built on an already impressive core. I'm shocked at how little attention they seem to be getting.
Good to see Calgary and Winnipeg pretty much stayed out of it, as promised. FA day is turning into a complete joke. I can't remember the last FA signing that had any meaningful impact (at least, commensurate to the salary given).
I have to admit, the Cole signing for Montreal is a good one. Possibly the least overpaid of the big contracts this year (even if still a bit overpaid).
PS: WTF Burke? Desperate to fulfill your UFA promises much?
