I'm not saying that Richards will be a better player. If anything, Richards is probably going to be plugged in a checking role in Philadelphia and Carter will get a spot handed to him on a scoring line. I hate to say it, but I think the days of the smaller player coming back to be the dominant player are starting to happen again. I hope we have a little Martin St.Louis in Richards. That wouldn't be too bad......
Not me...I think with some seasoning Richards will be the better of the two. While Carter is a little more flashy, Richards like you said is a little more polished and is very sound defensively at such a young age.
