I think that was a result of him playing center and not matching up well against the likes of Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture.
He should do better as a winger playing with Stoll and Clifford. He'll bring some much needed speed and tenacity to that line. I thought Richardson played his best when he was playing wing with Handzus and Simmonds.
He'll be a player counted on as being the first one to the puck due to his advantage in speed. He's not the most physical nor the strongest, but he can use his skating to pressure opposing defensemen and force turnovers while Clifford handles the rough stuff and Stoll plays the role of the defensively responsible center (which he excels at).
