Amnesty buyout for Richards is in the cards because of the cap recapture. Even if Richards was playing well,the Rangers should still buy him out. The NHL made a big deal about cap recapture in the CBA talks. It dealt with a small group of players and the NHLPA gave it to them. A major reason for the cap recapture is Brian Burke. He doesn't like the long term contracts. He testified for the NHL in the Kovalchuk case. Testified against his mentor Lou Lamoriello. Nice guy.
