Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
• The free agent to-be has told an old Tampa source that he has no real interest in playing in Toronto, if he, in fact, becomes a free agent come July. Richards’ first choice is to remain in Dallas, assuming the team gets sold and can afford to sign him. His second and third choice, not necessarily in order, would be returning to Tampa (which doesn’t seem possible economically) or playing for his old coach, John Tortorella, with the New York Rangers. He has also hinted about having some interest regarding playing in Carolina.
When asked about Toronto, he apparently said nothing but shook his head.
• Hope the new Buffalo Sabres ownership will put a buck or two into the backup goaltender: The last four years, Buffalo’s backups have won just 19 of 61 starts. You invest in an upgrade in goal and you go from out of the playoffs to possible contender.
