To me the scary prospect is having to use the amnesty on Richards because of cap recapture, and then being stuck with Nash on the books forever on LTIR. Then there's all the guys who are going to need raises, etc. Ugh. Scary path to think down. I'll just keep pretending Nash is gonna be cleared any day now.
If Nash retires due to injury (which I highly doubt) the Rangers would get charged nothing as the Blue Jackets signed him to his current contract. Even then there wasn't any cap circumventing in his contract so the recapture would be minimal.
