Not really. Habs fans demand players play hard and to their potential. Thats why so often you see a fourth liner be popular beyond his actual contribution to the team, because he plays hard and is a good fourth liner so the fans appreciate him.
Richer was a big guy, and though not physical he could protect the puck. He was also fast, could stickhandle and boy could he shoot. He and Kovalev had a similar game.I loved watching Richer, he was terrific. BUT. Richer scored 50 one year, then 25, then 51, then back down to 31. Fans saw he could score 50 and expected him to consistently do it because the ability was there and when he wasnt, it was because he wasnt giving it his all. So, boo.
