I never liked the Richards trade and would've assumed to just never acquire him. But I can understand the reasoning behind turning several less valuable assets into one higher-profile piece if the opportunity presents itself.
Haha, check this thread out
. I wanted to undo that trade even after we made the WCF. That was not a popular opinion.
You know a stat that shocked me?
Brad Richards had 5 PP points for the playoffs in 2008 (all assists). That was only good for 6th on the team behind Ribeiro (11A), Modano (5G-4A), Robidas (3G-5A), Morrow (4G-3A), and Lehtinen (3G-3A). He was 6th in ice time as well, but he played over 4:00 minutes a game still similar to the other players. Only Ribs played over 5 minutes.
Glovesave brought up an interesting question even though I don't think there's a good way to answer it. I was still thinking about it tonight driving home. When I got on the computer, I was surprised that Richards' PP stats weren't as prominent as I expected.
Dallas' PP was so important in the upset of Anaheim and San Jose
