Amnesty buyout is a no brainer. Richards is not playing like a very good player anymore. He isn't worth the money. Its not hard to make that determination. The Rangers are going to be stuck with that contract if there is no compliance buyout executed. Keeping him and expecting Richards to recapture his glory from the TB and Dallas days is foolish when the player hasn't shown any glimpse of being that player on a consistent basis. Richards isn't going to get better with age. Everyone expected some decline during the nine year contract but not in the 2nd year. The Garden isn't worried about an amnesty buyout.
