Well, I agree that Richard hasn't been a success this far, but still he's 2nd after Gaborik in total points, 2nd on the team in scoring. Yeah, he's making 7 million and I would like him to contribute more, but it's not like he's been awful.

And I can't see why all focus is on him, when for example Dubinsky has 5 goals and a 4.2 million contract?
A lot of player are doing a lot worse in scoring this year comparing to last year.

Dubinsky had 24 goals in 77 games last year. On pace for 9 in 77 g
Boyle had 21 goals in 82 games. On pace for 5
Prust had 13 goals in 82 games. On pace for 3
Anisimov had 18 goals in 82 games. On pace for 13

Richards had 28 goals in 72 games. On pace for 24

Stats wise Richard isn't doing that bad, what's bothering me is that he hasn't been running the PP as well (at all) as I would have hoped.
