Yes, if we can sign Brad Richards, in a heartbeat Stoll becomes the best 3rd line C in the league arguably with Jordan Staal, but at what cost to add Richards, you lose somewhere else on the roster etc,

The other problem is people are trying to compare Stoll to guys like Carter, Malkin, Zetterberg etc, which is ridiculous as well, and they are saying he isn't a 2nd line C, because of that comparison.
Understood, and agree.

That being said, my only beef with Stoll, is his lack vision or being a playmaker. If we lose williams (our only other good playmaker besides kopitar), Stoll might struggle, especially during playoff time when its a very tight checking game. I hope he makes me eat crow.
