12 of Richards' 31 points have come from the PP. More than any other player on the team. Last year he had 29 PP points. So he's on pace to fall short of that mark by 4 or 5 points this year. Can't see how that's the problem. Also, wasn't fixing the PP part of the reason he was signed in the first place?

He's supposed to be a 1st line center. A guy that makes the players around him better. Kudos to him for the mentoring he's doing for Stepan and Del Zotto, but we need him to do more on the ice. You can say "get him better line mates" but what does it say to that point when his primary line mate has just as many points as he does? I agree he needs a consistent option on the LW, but he just hasn't been doing what he needs to do on the ice. He looks rushed and confused whenever he has the puck. He has to be better in spite of whatever circumstances he's in.
