I think your missing the point. We don't have to make a trade. If something falls in our lap we would have the cap flexibility to pounce. This is going to be a unique off season with the buyouts and teams being forced into decisions with the cap dropping.
The people who are arguing for the buyout are actually looking out for the long term health of the team. Keeping Richards is short sighted.
Instead of rolling the dice on Richards regaining his form and not getting injured. Why don't we roll the dice on our youth. See if Stepan and Brassard can handle the #1 and #2 Center spots. Let Miller/Lindberg/Boyle round out the #3/#4 center roles. That is something I could get behind.
