Huh? No one here is particularly interested in signing Richards if it means a cap hit large than 7 million. At most, people are basically willing to settle for 7.5, which is a relatively minor difference, all things considered.

That's not true. They'll both have plenty of money left over, especially the Leafs. Too bad Richards won't want to play for them.
