That's like, maybe, just enough to sign Richards. And that would be with letting Feds, Prospal, Eminger, etc go. We'd be rolling a line-up of like,

Wolski - Christensen - Gaborik
Dubinsky - Anisimov - Callahan
Avery - Stepan - Zuccs
Drury - Boyle - Prust

Staal - Girardi
McDonagh - Sauer
Del Zotto - Gilroy


About $6.9M summer space without Richards.
About $6.6M regular season space without Richards, and no extra forwards/defenseman.

If Sather manages to pull in Richards, he'll 100% have to buy somebody out to add anything else. And he better. Even if you replace Christensen with Richards in that lineup... Gross.
You're joking, right? Thats nearly the same lineup that got us to the playoffs. And you say it's gross even after adding Richards? Some people...
