Richards probably wont be shooting nearly as much because he will be playing along side a top five goal scorer if healthy.

He could score 20 goals, and rack up 60-70 assists (80-90 points).

The whole idea is for him to be that elite playmaker. Not a scorer.

Richards never had a scorer like Gaborik in his NHL career. And Gaborik never had a passer like Richards in his NHL career.

You can't break down a free flowing, non linear sport like hockey, with sabremetrics.
