Richards Update: Buffalo Talk Begins

0

It was inevitable.

With the New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs often mentioned as the main suitors for Brad Richards in news reports, and failing to land his rights (so far), it was only a matter of time before a sports writer out there remembered that the Sabres are now owned by Terry Pegula.

Kevin Allen, of USA Today, just made the Pegula connection.

Richards, 31, could be the hottest free agent in the market, and there seems to be considerable interest in the Eastern Conference. The New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs both need a center. Richards liked playing in Tampa before the Lightning dealt him to Dallas and he excelled under Rangers coach John Tortorella when both were on the Lightning. The Buffalo Sabres could try to make a signifcant offseason splash under new owner Terry Pegula, and they could use a top center if Tim Connolly is not going to be re-signed.
