Trade Proposal w/ Tampa Bay

I remember watching a Bob Mckenzie segment on TSN where he mentioned that st. Louis might get shipped for much needed goaltending. But, Lecavalier and s.t. Louis make one of the best 1 ,2 punches in the NHL and I seriously doubt that Feaster would basically trade away his team's offence. It seems that Richards, if anything, would definitely be the first to go unless some team is willing for a gross overpayment for Lecavalier. What would it take for the Rangers to land Richards?

the obvious need for Tampa:
-goaltending (which we only really have a prospect--see: Montoya)
-defense (we have...Malik)
-second line offense (prucha, dawes)

To Tampa:
Montoya, Malik, Baranka, prucha/dawes

To Rangers:
Richards and a 3rd, taking 1.8 mil of his salary (ala Jagr from WAS)

Because our first line is just starting to gel, I'd put richards on the second line and put him or drury on wing. This would ease the retirement of Shanahan/Straka, but we would have no cap space to sign one of the big gun UFAs (Hossa) this summer.
