The issue is that Mike Richards wasn't trending downward in the way that Brad Richards is, and he was/is considerably younger. All of the players listed are younger. That's going to play a big role.

Personally, I think Richards is bought out. The possibility of the cap hit coming back to haunt us is too dangerous to roll the dice on.
