Who in their right mind thinks that? Gretzky is the greatest passer of all time, in today's game no one is even close. Crosby is the best in the league today even though he's still no Gretzky.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Richards has the 6th highest assists-per-game since the lockout. He's a great playmaker, sure no Gretzky, but he will be fine playing with Gaborik. Gaborik has NEVER played with a center in his career with the skill, speed and vision of Richards.

I really think they will be a dynamic duo and a treat to watch.
