Buffalo (If Ott leaves)
Florida (If Weiss leaves)
Phoenix (If they have money to spend)
Unfortunately, I agree w/this^.
But kudos to pld459666 for thinking outside the box!

As to return, let's not be greedy.
Even though it's not all deadwood, and due to high cash layout prior years the last 3 years are cheap cost, and even IF -- not sure --- there are some limited internal clauses as to buyout/NMC, we are still moving a huge contract after the last CBA.

If we can move him for minimum return and still retain our amnesty buyout (just in case, for whatever contingency, flexibility of it is good to have), that's worth it alone.

Again, nothing vs. Richards and his play being up or down on any given day.
In his case it is strictly about numbers,

As I was probably first to say, either he goes or you have nothing else but painful choices at some point for sure.
