Richards will eventually need to be bought out. If he is on this team for more than 2 more seasons he will be known as the worst contract in hockey. As far as I see it there are two options:
1) buy him out at the end of this season or trade him, trade Gaborik as well and bring in a Perry/Getzlaf combo.
2) keep Gaborik and resign him for two years, buy out Richards and bring in a centre from the 2014 class...
Richards is right now an asset despite his poor defensive performance but he will deteriorate quickly in the coming years.
