4-6 feet is the worst area though for maximum injury from that kind of hit. Richards put himself in a terrible spot for sure but you just can't hit a guy like that. If Richards' head goes into the boards at a slightly different angle (a few degrees more center) he's a quadriplegic. For me, the fact that the play can cause serious injury should be weighed into suspension length but it's clear that Shanahan doesn't give punishments based on that. Therefore, I'd expect Kaleta to get around 4 games.
