Actually it's pretty straight forward.

Callahan still is a guy who most fans would love on their team He's a guy who will fetch a decent return and will get paid if he hits UFA. It is very likely that a team will give him close to 7 mill.

That does not mean the Rangers should do so. With the FA re-signings the Rangers need to do this season and next, over paying for Callahan would put them in cap trouble, even if Richards is bought out. Signing him to a long term deal when he is very likely to regress would also create problems for future years.
