In reality trading Richards at the end of the last season was one of the smartest things Homer could have done. Richards is proving over the last 3 years to be roughly a 60-70 point player per year. Though he may be a significantly superior defensive foward he is still not worth the 5.75 Million dollar price point. In the salary cap era you can not commit almost 10% of your team salary to one defensive foward and win consistently.

As for Schenn, I agree that he has been a bit of a disappointment so far but he is a boy right now playing in a man's league. He has the talent to be a top 15 foward in the NHL he just needs to come into his own right and grow into his talent. Not every top draft pick is going to walk in at 19 like Crosby/Ovechkin and light up the league at 20 years old. He will be good, its just a matter of when he finally clicks and make his production consistent.
