So apparently trading Richards was in the works for a month or more.

According to Dean Lombardi:

Well, it’s been a pretty hectic four weeks, actually, between everything. I would say the issue of possibly acquiring him was broached about four weeks ago. Things just kind of evolved and then moved to a pressure point, to so speak, which is usually the draft and July 1. So in terms of the possibility of acquiring him, I was aware of that about four weeks ago, but I wasn’t sure how sincere they were...

 

Seems to me this looks a lot more deliberate and less about reacting to Bryz the more information comes out.  I guess we will not get the real story anytime soon.  Sad to hear Richie say he singed his deal because he planned to retire a Flyer, and that the first he had any idea about the trade was 30 minutes before it happened.
