40 may be a bit of a reach, but not that much of a reach.
The Rangers PP was abysmal, Richards ability to man the point is going to generate scoring.
His ability to play with an elite talent like Gaborik will help him get back to his 40+ goal out put.
His ability to score goals from the Center position is also going to help increase the overall team output. Our next best center scored only 21
Finally, his presence alone is going to draw teams top defence tandems allowing the Pack Line to continue their development as individuals and as a line so you can expect increased scoring there as well.
Actually, I could see a 40 goal increase in overall team scoring.
