I'm hopeful that having the cap space to make some moves will entice Sather into staying out of the initial rush on FA's and make some shrewd moves. I think some solid names will become available with the buyouts, and some teams who aren't as well off financially might be inclined to trade some other players to get under the cap as well.

I think the risk of Richards hurting himself is too great to keep him for another year.
