That may be a possibility if the rangers are in position to win another cup for year 7 of his contract. But there's no way he's going to stick around if he declines by then and especially if the team is pressuring him to retire or in some other way get the contract terminated.

Btw, I think this is actually the most blatant salary drop off in the league now. I don't think anyone else's contract goes straight from 7 to 1 mil lol. He's the highest paid player in the league next year too I believe.

The whole thing about Richards trying to save us assets I kind of doubt it was just that. He had legit negotiations with other teams, not to mention if we traded for his rights he would most likely have gotten a smaller contract. Unless there's an interview with those words coming out of Richards mouth I don't buy it
