A lot of people expect the New York Rangers to buy out Brad Richards, but the most emotionally invested part of Pat Morris still isn’t convinced it will happen.

Morris, the Newport Sports Management agent who represents Richards, joined the Hockey Central at Noon panel Tuesday to discuss his client’s much-talked about future. He said nothing has been settled in his talks with New York GM Glen Sather but wouldn’t rule out a return to Broadway for Richards.

“Maybe that’s my heart rather than my head [talking],” said Morris, “but with the commentary from Glen Sather, he was pretty positive about Brad’s role, especially after [former captain Ryan] Callahan left.”...

Another of Morris’s clients, Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan O’Reilly, has also been in the headlines lately.

It’s a situation worth keeping an eye on, both because of what’s already happened and what may occur in the not-too-distant future....

Morris said O’Reilly, 23, wasn’t entirely unprepared for this development, but it certainly sounds like he and his client hoped they could avoid going down this path.

“We’re now preparing for an arbitration case we didn’t think we’d have to tend to,” he said.
