I also am not "expecting" doom and gloom. It could work out GREAT if the cap space is used well, Lindberg steps in, and Brass puts up 60 points. I do take issue with COUNTING on that and with the argument that we will be fine and there are 0 risks with that scenario, and with having no other good options.

Less an issue with the Richards buyout, more with what a trainwreck this franchise has been.
Agreed. No guarantees with either scenario, but why drag Richards through another year and the whole team with him. So I agree it's done.

Just not many options available currently, and while I do think we'd have up and down stretches with the younger players it could work out well in the end.
