With the $ that Stepan and McDonagh will be getting
, a Richards buyout is almost a given. Very tough decision though. Teams simply can't afford to carry contracts written under the old salary cap rules with the new penalties.
I will avoid the discussion altogether about whether or not to buy out Richards (as there is basically an entire thread devoted to that). I`m not certain that McDonagh is going to get the $$$ that a lot of people think he is going to get (many ASSUME it will be around 4 million a year). I think McD`s contract is going to be like MDZ (a 2.55m bridge :
), or PK Subban (a 2.875m bridge :
). Unless Sather convinces McD to sign a long term deal like Staal, I can`t see Sather doling out 4 million bucks a year to McDonagh.
