Good guy Brad Richards continues his Stanley Cup dreams by signing with perennial favorites Chicago. The deal helps the Blackhawks depth at center and adds great leadership to an already good locker room.

The terms of the deal proves that Brad Richards is more concerned about winning then he is with money at this stage in his career. There is no doubt he left more money on the table from teams like Toronto and the NY Islanders.

NYR Notes: The Rangers added to their defensive depth with the signing of Matt Hunwick to only 600K.

Rangers also added 28 year old depth forward Chris Mueller, who will likely start the season in Hartford.
