Great posts SBOB in response to mine and others in this thread.
And I agree that it would take more than Zuccarello to inject some real skill/make a difference in the lineup, and I also agree that a consistent, average PP would hide a lot of the flaws this team has seemed to have shown recently.
But I think step 1 is giving Richards the linemates he should be commanding. The Rangers could have a reasonable top 6 but like you said, for whatever reason, Torts seems to want to get Richards going by playing him with some grinders.
