How can you not buy out Richards? It would be a horrendous decision to let him stay.
He's 33, coming off the least productive season of his career (in PPG average), and has been on a 4 year downswing (91 pts - 70 pts - 66 pts - 34 pts/60pts over 82 games).
And he's signed through 2019.
I do not want to keep paying this guy to be a 50 point center for the next 7 years. We can use that money so much better on other players. His $7m a year needs to be spent on Rick Nash's and Henrik Lundqvists, not a 50-60 point guy who struggles with consistency.
