2 2nd rounds this year (LA chooses which)
I think you could get guys the caliber of Nolan or Ellerby on waivers or with minimal free agent contracts. Not much value to me for them in the proposal. I like Richards a lot. But at his premium salary and some of the wear and tear on him (due to his smaller size and style of play, not his age) I'd consider him a risky venture. I wouldn't actually trade Eller alone for Richards, even though Richards is obviously better... for now. Totally wouldn't consider throwing in all that other stuff (esp. Gorges, but also the 2nds). Terrible, terrible trade for the Habs IMHO. (And I think I always list Richards as my favourite player in the NHL outside of Habs!)
