Memories can be pretty short. Richards was well behind Carter in contributions early, nothing special his rookie year and couldn't put the puck in the ocean early in Year 2 (The Meltdown Year). It was only late that season he really started coming on and I was telling people look out next year, he'll be our #1 center and a good one.

I can see the fans really getting on Versteeg and Carle if the team comes out slow. Also, Homer as it really is his team now. The longest term on the roster is now Coburn's.
