Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of The Spin,
The Maple Leafs want to be in on the free agent bidding for Brad Richards.
If there is any.
This, obviously, could be a situation similar to that in 2009 when Brian Burke quietly journeyed to Sweden on the final day of June hoping to be able to present the Sedin twins with contract offers the next day. Vancouver GM Mike Gillis, however, beat Burke to the punch, and Daniel and Henrik stayed out west.
This time around, Burke would like to at least have a chance to negotiate with Richards, and it’s been suggested he might be willing to, if not break the bank, do some things contractually that he hasn’t be willing to do before in Toronto….
Now whether the Rangers or Kings would be willing to do more, well, we’ll see.
