Well I can't speak for anyone but myself. I think some had unrealistic expectations for him, but that comes with the territory. If he puts up a PPG in the second half, great! That's what we need out of him. However, he's going to need to find another gear if he hopes to do that.

Just to add: I think there's a problem when you invest the kind of money in a player that we did with Richards, and 44 games into the season we're already talking about "getting him X" or "he really needs Y". Great players are great players. Gaborik scored 42 goals with Prospal and EC on his line. I'm sure Richards has it in him to be a 70 point center with Callahan on his wing.
