In a vacuum, it's pretty close to even value. But everything that Richards brings to the table besides the pure statistics is already provided by Dubinsky, Callahan and Prust. That's why I said "as currently constructed." I'd rather have a potential 40-goal guy without the leadership in this lineup than a potential 30-goal guy with it.
