Richards will turn 34 during this year's playoffs. He has six more years after this season at a huge cap hit. He's having an ok (not great but ok) bounce back season after last season's disaster, bringing himself out of Redden territory but in no way justifying his salary.

Keeping him for next year means keeping him six more years, which would be an absolute disaster. At some point this organization (meaning Sather because he is the organization) has to look past the next year and make smart decisions.

The fact that the salary cap is going up is irrelevant - regardless what the cap ceiling is, the cap space can be put to better use. The fact that Sather is too stupid to find better use for the cap space is an entirely different discussion.
