Brad Richards still has as many 90 pts seasons as Danny Briere (95 pts once, and one season were he projected to score almost 100...).
In the end, we could talk back and forth on this subjects for years. 95% of the time it doesn't seem like anyone really understands what the other one is saying et c.
But I am kind of "allergic" to this whole "Richards is better then Drury and Gomez" talk -- because I am 100% sure that it is not about that at all.
Scott Gomez was darn important and instrumential in a couple of Cup wins for NJD. Chris Drury has played some darn good hockey over the course of his career too, and been very important for his team. Redden put up the stats for Ottawa. Are you denying that?
No matter if Brad Richards now is better then Gomez was for NJD or Chris Drury was for Colorado or Wade Redden for Ottawa --
its a fact that Gomez, Redden and Drury didn't do sheit for us.
Especially Drury and Redden. We didn't get anything really, besides a lockerroom presence. Nothing. If Richards were 20% better then Drury, it is still of little help when Drury scores 1 goal and 4 assists in a season if you get what I mean.
We signed Redden as a top 30 scorer among D's in the NHL. 6'2. North American. No attitude problems. Sure we paid a lot, but we it shouldn't have been that risky, right? Yes it was. We got a AHLer.
If you want to defend signing Richards, tell me why he will not come here and give us nothing, unlike Redden and Drury -- if you get what I mean.
Like I am in favor of getting Richards if we can get him for a fair price. But it has nothing to do with him playing a tad better for Dallas then Scott Gomez did for NJD. Nothing.
