Claim Mike Richards off waivers. Bo Horvat's idol. Bieksa is injured.

To Toronto: Nick Bonino

To Vancouver: Cody Franson

With Richards at 2C, he will either thrive or we will suck.

Draft top 7 without a good 2C.

Horvat Develops.

Franson is part of a long future.

Was this trolling?

First, claim off waivers a 4th liner who carries a cap hit of $5.75 per for the next FIVE seasons after this, presumably because a few years ago he was a good player.

Second, as Monty pointed out, trade a player who will be underpaid through 2017 for someone who intends to test the free agent waters as an UFA next summer, expecting $5 million per.

Why would we do this?

How would we stay under the cap?

Unless Richards spent the next five years living up to what he once was and Franson re-signed for a reasonable price, the franchise would be handcuffed for years. That's a huge gamble to take on two things which are both less likely than not.
