He's currently the 5th highest paid C in the league (where 6th makes $400k less), and that does not seem destined to change anytime soon. Richards will be looking at a paycut and Stamkos might get into that range.

Burke should be looking for a young guy to grow with our team.....not an albatross contract to a declining player that is going to screw us over for the next 8 years -- the time frame when we actually have a chance to be good. If Toronto wanted to get rid of Komisarek, they could do it with a lot less pain.
#6 in league scoring, #7 last year and if he makes it to free agency he will be the only first-line center.... Richards is going to be able to name his price and term. Think $8 million or a 10-year contract. He's earned it.
