Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
If I heard it once, I heard it a dozen times during this Entry Draft weekend in Minnesota: “[Brad] Richards told [X] he wants to come to New York.”
And this, too: “Slats [general manager Glen Sather] is going to blow his brains out to sign Richards.”
To which I respond: If Richards “wants to come to New York,” $32.5 million over five years—starting at $11 million this year to protect against a potential future rollback—should be enough money and enough of a commitment for him to achieve his dream.
And this: If Sather does indeed “blow his brains out to sign Richards,” to borrow from the vernacular, then the GM truly will have lost his mind.
