If he's looking for 8 years, there is no way a team will be willing to pay him $8 million at ages 37-39. If long-term stability is what he's looking for, an 8 yr deal with the 1st 5 at $8 million and the salary decreasing in the final 3 years is ok with me if it gets it done.
It also lowers his cap hit, and makes him attractive in his later years to teams with internal caps if there is to be departure btw Richards and the Leafs.
If he wants 8 yrs with a cap hit of $8-$9 million, I hope he enjoys Broadway.
If he wants a 60+ mil contract, he ain't gonna see Broadway unless it is as a tourist.
