There's been no shortage of buyout rumors for Richards, not necessarily for this season, but strongly speculated for 2014. In a declining cap situation, he's not worth as much as people might think. He'll have a 6.66M cap hit for another 7 years after this, while putting up some pretty mediocre offensive numbers.

That's not to say that proposed offers of Stajan+ would get a deal done. It is after all Glen Sather, who managed to pry McDonagh and Higgens for an underachieving Gomez. However, Gomez was never considered to be a buyout candidate while with the Rangers.
