Moving him is a waste of the best forward on this team. He's the leading scorer on this team. Best playmaker on this team. Best defensive center on this team.
You want to shift him to center so Giroux can play center, and give away a TON defensively. Richards is +0.97 per 60 minutes, Giroux is +0.34.
It's a really, really bad idea. Giroux isn't as good as people think he is, and Richards is much better than people seem to appreciate (remarkably).
