I like Richards. I think he is a great player and great guy to help with the teams youth. Fact is he isnt producing right now. He isnt getting younger. His pay check will hurt us shortly. Unless he has a pretty instant turn around he isnt giving the Rangers much of a reason to keep him around. He should be traded while he still has value in the NHL. I doubt Torts will allow it but that is just this movies opinion.
With his albatross contract he has much less trade value than one would think. The Rangers might have to take on someone else's mistake in return.

I think it's much more likely that he'll be bought out as the second compliance buyout rather than traded.
