No, but without that sniper his production will not reflect that of a player being paid as much as he is.
Look at how our first line is constructed. Grinder (anisimov), set up artist (Stepan), sniper (Gaborik).
Look at how our second line is constructed. Grinder (Callahan), set up artist (Richards), grinder (Hagelin/Dubinsky/Fedotenko). Sorely lacking of the sniper.
The slump set aside -I haven't started to ask for Ryan just now. This has been for months now. For Richards to reach his full potential for us we need 1 more bonafide sniper. Otherwise his line will remain incomplete and will not be able to fulfill all the potential it has.
