I don't understand why everyone is defending him. He needs to play better and put up more points. That's why he was brought in, to help carry the offensive load.

I am not saying he is a bad player, because I like watching him play but Scott Gomez had 70 points his first season as a Ranger and Ranger fans were all over him. Will the same happen to Brad if the same thing happens? He has a smaller cap hit but he has another 8 years on his contract.

Just pointing some facts out to people. If you think it's too early, fine. But due to the fact that the Rangers have been burned so many times by UFA's I am going to be cautious and a bit cynical, and I think that's fair.
Your giving me a hard time over my Boyle thread, but yet your complaing about Richards? He is our 2nd leading scorer and playing fine. He's even scored some big and timely goals for us. He's the last thing we need to be worrying about.
