I don't see Richards upside as an Yzerman. Staal's upside is a Francis/Yzerman type and he went 2nd in the same draft as Richards.
Staal's upside is hardly Francis or Yzerman. Truth be told....I think Richards will be the more valuable player in the future. Staal just doesn't sit well with me. He isn't strong on his skates, he isn't tough and he doesn't play physical for his size. Are you saying Yzerman and Sakic don't have grit?
