He very well be, but who's to know? We thought he was ready this year and looked lost in a few of the games. I was one that wanted to keep him up this year, but in the end am glad we didn't. I think it will be better for his growth. As I said, I hope Schenn does become Richards later on. I like the kid and only wish him well. To say that he will take 1-2 years to become a player of Richards caliber who can score, pass, quarterback the power play, hit like a freight train, fight, leadership and kill penalties (while scoring on the PK to boot) is just plain silly. What NHL prospect has done all that in their first year (not named Crosby, Malkin, Ovie, etc)? Not many. In fact, not many NHL players bring all that Richards does to the team.
