Richards needs to be better but short of him turning into a 100 point player, he needs to be bought out after next season.

I'm not ripping him or even getting on him for his play this season. I think he will recover to at least last years form soon enough.

However, that contract WILL become an albabtross to our cap in the future, theres no way around it and without the ability to dump a guy in the minors to save cap space, it has to be done.

That doesn't mean Richards can't be a good player here for 4-5 more years, but I think its something that probably has to be done.
