I wouldn't necessarily consider that relevant when discussing Richards' 'quarterbacking' abilities. I mean, just look at the forwards we've had at the point at times: Callahan, Drury, Kotalik, Gaborik, Wolski, Jokinen, Zherdev, etc. ALL of them failed, and not because of the Rangers, but because none of them were actually powerplay quarterbacks. Richards, however, is a different animal. He has been playing and excelling in that facet for, what, 7, 8 years? I'm not worried about him in the least.

This I agree with. It's pretty sad that this team hasn't had a legitimate puck mover since Leetch. When is the last time a Ranger D put up even 40 points? It's pathetic.
