Plus if stepan proves he can finish this year like this and go through the entire year next year playing this well... he can be our number 1c, miller is a great center as well and has potential to be a number 2 and at worst a number 3.. great FA's coming in 14'-16 we could certainly use the cap space moving forward for a younger stud player..
If Richards is going to be removed from the team, its going to be a buyout.

If Richards is not producing at the point to have to be bought out, I would guess Torts will be fired.
