2012-2013: $1,666,667

That means to sign Richards, at his current salary, you will need approx 11.5 million cap dollars next year. So Richards and Drury will eat almost 20% of our salary cap next season.
So, essentially, what you're saying is meaningless since Richards won't be signed at his current salary, not to mention that we don't need to buy Drury out to sign Richards when we can just wait one season till his contract ends.

I'm just curious. How many of these young guys will average 40 goals per season for the duration of their career, like Kovalchuk has for the 7 years before the last 3 months?
