Even if we don't consider that Richard could have done better with first line minutes and PP time (which is likely, but not a guarantee) his scoring placements over the years still make him a lock for the top-80, if not higher, even if he toiled on bad teams for a long time (think Johnny Bucyk). Given what we know about the circumstance, and his significant contribution to so many winning teams, it is certainly reasonable to give him a bump from approximately 80th to 55th-65th. I agree we can't credit him too much for what-ifs, but outpointing the whole league at even strength over a long period is quite the accomplishment.
