No serious rebuild can take place without trading or dumping Hank and his $8.5 mil contract. Hank's resigning was perhaps Glen's worst, a smart GM would have let him test the free agency market and then paid him the $6.5-$7 he deserved. Going into his 4th year Hank's contract still ranks 10th highest in the NHL with 2 more years left. Hank ranks 44th in save % and 56th in the NHL in GAA this year (granted a few above him have played a handful of games) but this has been commonplace for Hank since his payday. Last year he was 36th in save %/ (.915) 56th in GAA (2.98); 2 years ago 52nd save %/(.910) 56th GAA (2.74); 3 years ago 25th save % (.910) and 38th GAA (2.48). I must confess being a huge Richter fan and had the opportunity to meet him in Lake Placid many years ago and he was truly a humble dude but Hank's numbers don't lie and even the most optimistic fan is hard pressed to see brighter days ahead.
