Any way you slice it, maryjanes contract at 7.5 mil a year is bloated! He has scored 40+ goals once in his career so don't be surprised if he doesn't reach that # again.
Gaborik has scored 42 goals twice in his career.

Richards and Gaborik on the same line will force the defense to focus on both instead of double teaming one, so, in theory, it should create time and space.

Richards (number one center) + free agency = overpayment.

No matter how you slice it, players that enter free agency will be overpaid and the GM must decide who they really need to overpay to get said players.
