Brad Richards is the cream of this free agency crop.
He's just coming off of a $7 million a year contract with the Stars, but is probably going to be receiving another hefty pay raise, and long contract.
Richards may also be one of the hardest ones to figure out where he's going to go because everybody would want him. The big question will be who can actually afford him?
It seems a bit of a forgone conclusion that Richards will be out of Dallas, but Dallas actually has about $7 million of free space under the cap and could fit him back in.
There are a lot of teams that might make moves for him and drop some other players to free up some space.
Richards had expressed an openness at the deadline to play with the Rangers, but the Rangers would have to make some moves to make some space, but crazier things have happened. I'm looking at you, Ilya Kovalchuk.
Destination: New York Rangers
Dark Horse: Toronto Maple Leafs
