First, LTIR is for long term injuries during the season. If he has a career ending injury, yeah, we can place him on LTIR every year for the last 6 years of his contract (which still isn't ideal). But he doesn't need a career ending injury. All he needs to do is be injured during the small buyout window in 2014. If he gets hurt next year and needs surgery in the summer, we won't be able to buy him out.

Second, if we give him a regular buyout in 2016, his cap hits for 2017, 2018 and 2019 would be 6.5 mil. Capgeek is your friend.

Why in the world would the Rangers do this? Richards has been on a steady decline for a few years now. He is going to be WORSE next year than he was in 2013! And slower!

I'm wondering if the Rangers will even make the playoffs next season at this rate.
