Richer wasn't a 1st round pick, but as he came onto the scene he became a 1st round talent.
When Richer scored 50, fans thought he was a lock for 50 forever, and it just doesn't work like that. I don't think Richer ever wanted to be 'the guy'. I'm not sure that he ever had the type of personality that separates a superstar from a good player.
Turgeon arrived with peressure, he was expected to produce, but as time went on, questions arose about mental toughness, the will to compete when things got tough.
Pressure is there whenever the public knows the talent is there, I couldn't say that either was treated that harshly.
