I just cant really figure a team throwing over 6 mil/yr at a declining center who will be 34 at the start of next year. If a team does, then sure take him, but if they can bring him back for a cap hit around 5 then I think that would be a pretty solid move.
What you suggest is not allowed under the CBA. Either the Rangers cut ties with Richards or they keep him under his current contract.
