Richards is a great player, but some things concern me about a potential trade for him.
1. While the Kings have an obvious hole at #2 center, there is a much larger hole on first line winger.
2. The cost. The Kings aren't getting Richards for lower level prospects like Hickey and Teubert. While I don't see us moving Schenn for him, say goodbye to players like Forbort or Loktionov + maybe roster players like Simmonds and Martinez.
3. Richards plays the point on the PP, the Kings PP is not bad because of point players. We desperately need a finisher on the PP that can score from the slot and circles.
4. Richards is an UFA
