I was thinking the exact same thing Bubba. That Richards contract could become very dangerous if his game drops off a cliff in the next year or two. I like having that option for the second compliance buyout.

This new AHL salary above 900k counts against the cap rule means Slats needs to be careful with his yearly horrendous 4th line signing. The Patrick Rissmiller's and Brash's of the world will now count against the cap. Can't hide them in Hartford any longer. Thankfully it seems like we will be able to navigate out of the last year of the Redden contract or else that would have been a cluster F with the cap going down.
