Not the full cap-hit. What counts is the difference between the cap-hit and actual salary for the remaining years of the contract.

If Richards retires when he reaches his $1M years his cap penalty would be $6.667M - $1M = $5.667M/year for the remaining years.

Since contracts cannot be front-loaded in the same manner under the new CBA, Clowe retiring before the end of his contract would likely carry little to no penalty at all.
