We need to find more consistent goal scoring, and I'd be a big advocate of pairing Richards with Gaborik. Richards has looked lost out there, blind passes, struggling to get it settled on the PP, throwing bad shots on net, etc. He really needs to get his game together, entirely. Gaborik has been ok, but he has to finish. He isn't getting paid $7.5 million for scoring chances, but to finish. And Gaborik scoring 1 goal in his last 10 games is not cutting it. Gaborik's absence in goal scoring has become extremely apparent with the current events.

In regards to Staal, it is what it is. The guy didn't play in what... a year? I don't know what people genuinely expected from him. It wouldn't surprise me if he didn't find his game until the end of the season / playoffs.

That being said, he shouldn't be getting the minutes he is getting (especially against talent like Malkin).
