If the deals don't circumvent the cap, then no penalty will be applied. The penalty only applies if Richards retires early.

If the Rangers fully expected Richards to play the full 9 seasons, there would be no problem. But that isn't the case. The final 3 years of his contract are for 1 million. In short, the Rangers gave Richards a 6 year deal disguised as a 9 year deal to lower the caphit.
