One of the biggest positives about acquiring Richards, is that he shoots lefty.... Lefty Center + Lefty RW = ideal for getting off one-timers.... Goaltenders are going to have a difficult time with Richards' precision passing coupled with Gaborik's release. Key next season is going to be getting shots off and having a forward on the ice who can chase down loose pucks and bang home rebounds. Dubinsky would fill that roll nicely but I'm more concerned about spreading out the scoring depth so it'll depend on what the rest of the forwards are generating out there.
