What if he went on a tear this year and they could have attempted to move him.

Q2: No. That would bring on a grievance from the Union I suspect.
Answer: Just buyout Tom Gilbert for cap relief.

The combined buyouts of the contracts for Ilya Bryzgalov and Vincent Lecavalier are greater than the 2012-13 payrolls of 9 NHL teams.

Bang on. Note similarities between Richards and Henrik Sedin. Very good move by New York.
