Anyways, all signs point to him staying, however bad that is for us.
contracts that were signed before the most recent CBA.

Because that contract has significant back diving years, if that player retires at any time, the signing team is hit with a cap recapture penalty.

We can trade Richards, but if he retires from the acquiring team after 3 years, The Rangers are hit the cap recapture. Not the team that traded for him.
