In speaking with some close to Rangers Brad Richards and the 7 years left on his deal MAY be bought - Gaborik gone too so need to retool

Why buy out? I'm sure there is at least one of the 29 teams willing to take a calculated risk on him and his contract?

I don't get why they would buy him out? They would be paying off the buyout until 2027 with some heavy cap hit years in that buyout.

Compliance buy out doesnt affect the cap? Also the Rangers are rich, so if that was the only option they could do it.

Yes. In a heartbeat. Take out the 2nd for the Rangers and I still do it, heartbeat.

Gaborik would only take up cap space for half the year due to injuries, and Richards just needs to get out of the Rangers. He was doing very well with Dallas before the move.

Gabby is a sniper, but wouldn't need to be relied on to take the crash and bang game night in, night out on the first line, every night.

Sedin-Sedin-Higgins/Burrows
Raymond-Richards-Gabork
Higgins/Burrows-Kesler-Hansen
Really-Who-Cares

Let the kids play in the minors, get chemistry with each other.

Rangers would never go for it though, so it's almost pointless to say it.

I did not know there were different forms of buying out a player haha. I was just going by that calculator they have online. I still figured they could find someone to take him though. Or at least explore that thoroughly first all throughout the offseason.

Should be noted that Richards has a NMC and Gaborik has a NTC.

The amnesty buyout doesn't count against the cap. It also doesn't get paid out over double the remaining term, it is just 2/3rds paid out over the remaining term.

Having said that, I don't see them doing it. It's not a question of cost to the Rangers to do it, but that they'd still need someone to replace him and could likely trade him if they felt he didn't work going forward.

Yes that contract is pretty bad. Richard's contract last until 2020 or something (LMAO!). If we make the trade and it doesn't pan out, that buy out is going to cost a ton of money.

Gaborik's contract is much more manageable.

The benefit of this trade is that we don't need to give up any future for current talent. In fact we would get a 2nd pick out of this. So the only risk is money, but A LOT of money.

Would be such a stupid decision if they did. He could easily be traded for at least something.

And Richards and Gaborik aren't the problem, it's the coach.

Sounds very much like they'd all fit in nicely in Vancouver.
