There are teams out there that only dream to have that kind of player on their team. Giving him a rating of 1 means we are set at that postion and I am glad we have him.
Richards, who better to have on the ice with 30 secs left and a 1 goal lead. You are not going to find a better leader and competitor with the on ice vision he has. How will you upgrade that position. We are set for the shutdown role for years.
I was under the impression that your ratings were in comparison to players on other teams as well. Based on that, imo Kopitar is not a 1. Crosby, Malkin, Datsyuk, etc.. those are 1s.
Richards could be a top shut down center, but I don't think he's been that in LA yet.
