They only penalty they will receive is the amount they cheated the cap over the life of the contract.
How exactly did they cheat? If anything, the NHL clarified the rule and made contracts like Richards not "circumventing" anything. They made the rule clear and the Rangers followed it with Richards. Why should they be punished for following a rule the NHL clarified after Kovalchuk?
