Exactly.. every person on the team is having a down year and Richards included. I'm as disappointed as the next person with Richards performance but singling out on player is pretty stupid when the whole team isn't performing well. And to assume Simmonds, who a year earlier had a disappointing season, would be playing like he is in Philly is presumptive to say the least. As far as Schenn goes, he has slowed down over the past few weeks it appears.
