I just don't see the reason not to give him one more year.

The odds of him suffering a long injury are small. Having a Brad Richards, even a half-Richards like we had this season can make the difference between winning and losing.

We will have to buy him out after next year. That seems a certainty. But I don't think we'll have a problem re-signing everyone with him on the cap, and I don't see a UFA option out there that I would rather have for a year than Richards at that number. Like his play or not, there is still a decent chance he can be a 60 point center over the duration of a full season. Lindberg wouldn't be.
