If I understood OP correctly, the question is not which player would you prefer, but which strategy do you choose.
Don't see Thornton leaving SJ, or they're letting him go, anytime soon.
Unless the target is a young elite -- Stamkos, pre-injury Malkin --- don't want to go crazy with contracts that could bind us for years. everything a proportionately reasonable number as a base, with extremely generous performance bonuses. This way a player delivers, I'm happy, and if it didn't happen, and my cap is not overly screwed, then I'm still good.
To answer the question, not sure what can be done besides Richards via free agency, and hope he understands the team can accommodate him, but only so much.
