Even if we can't get Getzlaf the point is we need the flexibility. Ideally, keep Richards until we can replace him with something greater, but actually the amnesty buyout doesn't work that way.

$6.67m is even more proportionally post-lockout than it was when he signed. We cannot keep that money locked up long-term on a player who is only going to go downhill (fact) and who has a no movement clause.
