Trade Richie before the deadline if you can. If you can't, compliance buyout this summer is a MUST.

Trade MDZ before the deadline for something of equal value where we can actually maximize that value.

Fire Torts.

If by some miracle G, McD and Nash can all return in the near future, keep the team together as-is and continue on to try to make a run at the Cup (unless you get a fantastic offer for MDZ, who is still an underutilized asset). Then, trade Gabby in the offseason. Torts's survival depends on how the team does.

Either way, Richie's contract needs to go in the offseason.
If the Rangers trade Richards and he retires any time before his contract expires, aren't the Rangers on the hook?

The original signing team.

If that's the case, trading him should not be an option. The only way to be completely free of that contract is to use the last compliance buy out on him.
