Richard's contract was signed before the new CBA where back diving contracts are now penalized. If Richards retires before the age of 40 when his contract runs out, the Rangers will pay a cap penalty. If Richards were playing at an elite level, it might be worth it to risk the cap penalty. Since he's not, it's a no brainer and he has to be bought out.
