Richards wears down over the course of the season, and his physical play isn't a factor at all. Richards is also doing almost nothing at even strength. Carter is our best even strength offensive player, and has been for years.
Ironically the Flyers needed to slow the play down a little, grind it out and focus on wearing down their defense. Pressure the puck on the d-mans stick, they are not the most agile crew on the backend.

Richards needs to focus on an offseason workout regimen.
