I'm convinced we're keeping him around for at least one more year, and I wouldn't be surprised if he bounced back and had a good year next year. Gomez, Gionta and Pacioretty were pretty good together last year.
If we trade Gomez, and take back 50% or less in salary (i.e. not get any more than $4 million in salary coming back our way in the deal) then we can likely make a serious push for Richards.

Gomez for whatever

Then we sign Richards

I think we'd all be thrilled by that, no?
