Ok what I would do with Richards is trade him this year or next to a team looking for cap.

Phoenix or Nashville would be good choices.

Though some cash into the deal to facilitate a buy out at 35-36 if Richards wants to retire early

A win win for everyone

The last 3years of Richard's are at 1 mil per with a cap hit over 6mil that is value
for a low cap team.
Richards has a NMC, you think Nashville and Phoenix appeal to him?

Also if the Rangers trade him, they have the potential of a big cap-benefit recapture charge if he retires early.

While I'm not freaking out about his play (like I didn't when he played like a horse's ass in January and February last season), I think an amnesty buy-out in 2014 is a no-brainer.
