Rangers may be better off buying out Richards and seeing if they can make a package to try to get Shea Weber.
I don't exactly see the point. With a healthy Staal (which, sadly, seems to exist for 1/4 of a year these days, but that shouldn't continue), we have the best defense in the league.

This is the only consideration. Richards doesn't play too much of a physical game, which puts that risk lower, but it's the only thing i'd take into consideration.

When is the buyout deadline in the offseason?
