If you acquire a player with a $4M hit instead of $7M (let's say) for Richards, how can you further improve the team with that $3M savings? Does addressing multiple needs leave you with a better team overall?
agreed...except that stastny is only 25, so you'd be paying him $6.6 mil from 25-31 instead of richards from 31-37. he'd be a much more long term solution and you wouldn't have the worry of his play dropping off late in the contract...

of course it depends on what you'd have to give up in the trade too
