Mike Richards is very similar to Doug Gilmour in terms of his overall game. Jeff Carter is very similar to Mats Sundin in terms of his overall game.
I've always said that Richards will be the better player of the two simply because he doesn't quite have the talent Carter has, but more than makes up for it in terms of hockey sense. His hockey sense is much superior to Carter's.
Two completely different players though in terms of style. Carter will be the goal scorer and Richards will be the captain. I'm just happy that we got both of them. I'll admit that when we drafted Carter and Richards, I was more or less hoping for something like Dustin Brown and Patrick O'Sullivan. However, I can't complain with what we walked away with. Both players are on the verge of being with the big team and making favorable impressions throughout the league (if it ever starts back up).
