If you want to get rid of Richards and Gaborik, thats fine. The replacements simply cannot be 2/3rd line tweeners with a limited offensive game.
If you improve the depth on this team and keep money available you can supplement that with other scoring talent who won't make as much money. Ryder? Trade for ROR? It opens up options having more young skilled pieces to work with.

I guess I just don't see Gaborik as someone you can rely heavily on and win.
