Brad Richards is an elite center.

He isn't generational like Crosby and Stamkos.

772 GP
716 Pts
Stanley Cup
Conn Smythe

How does that not equal elite.

Of all the centers being listed, there are only a select few that lead a team to a Cup.

Crosby, Toews, Staal, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Richards.

And as far as Thornton, Sedin, And some of the other guys the margin is slim.

Richards IS an elite center.

The contract is for 9 years but is heavily front loaded. And the cap hit is manageable. Its a no brainer.

This +/- nonsense is reaching to try to discredit the player.
