Amnesty buyout for Brad Richards this year
7 years left
$36.000.000
Two thirds of amount to BR = $24.000.000
$1,714,286 per year paid out for 14 years

Amnesty buyout for Brad Richards next year
6 years left
$18.000.000
Two thirds of amount to BR = $24.000.000
$1,500,000 per year paid out for 12 years

$6.000.000 in total difference for Dolan to shell out...
The lower buyout by waiting a year would be a key factor if not an amensty buyout and you had to worry about a cap hit. But it really doesn't save Dolan any $$ cause he needs to pay Richards $9 mil next year in order to save $6 mil over the next 12-14 years...
