If he played like that all the time no one would even think about trading him, but he doesn't. He's gotten either too injured to play that way or too wrapped up in the numbers and has moved to a more finesse game. When Richards plays LIKE he's a third line center, he's a GREAT hockey player (still capable of putting a point/game as he did in his breakout season), but he rarely plays like that anymore.
