No ifs ands or buts he should have been bought out this year. Best case scenario now is amnesty buyout ASAP.

Another thing about his contract it's going to start costing us players. This year we're going into the season pretty much with last year's team because of no cap flexibility. We probably have enough to cover our RFA's but if someone were to offer sheet McDonagh for us to match this year might cost us Zuccarello because we wouldn't have the cash to pay him to keep McDonagh. For as long as Richards and his contract are here this scenario is going to play out again and again each and every year. It's also going to limit our options in the free agent market. Unless he turns into Sidney Crosby overnight he has to go.
