Sean McInode does it again. His comments on the Richards contract, in particular, really hit home given how much many of us wanted to keep him here. (and how badly we need a stud center to this day.)
"What were they thinking? Richards was the only star player available during the 2011 free-agency period. Glen Sather is Glen Sather."
Perhaps the austere twilight of the Tom Hicks era was a blessing in disguise, otherwise the Stars would likely have an albatross on the books to rival a few of these...
