Well, I mean it's a little different if Brad Richards, who has been a 70+ guy almost his whole (healthy) career, comes here and puts up 40 points, compared to Frolov being a nothingmaster. We saw how it may, or may not have affected Gaborik, and he's the only real offensive talent we have to gauge whether or not this system this past season neutered his offensive production.

My point being if Richards is signed, and both he and Gaborik have underwhelming seasons, you have to look at the system/coach rather than the players themselves.

At this point I'm not convinced it was Torts' system that held Gaborik back.
