Put the two together, and its a recipe for success.
Gotta admit, I'm happy with the Richards signing especially since there was no plan B in place if we didn't get him. He is definitely a top 5 playmaking center despite being a top 20 talent in the league.
Now for Mr.Gaborik: classifying him as a top 5 scorer(assuming he is healthy? and motivated??) is careless and silly. If a "motivated" maryjane pots between 30-35 goals this coming season, we should all jump for joy and turn cartwheels across the floor. However, if he gets injured(pretty likely) and/or isn't motivated(after last year,who knows?), then perhaps he can become a top "5" scorer in the khl after we cut him loose.
