I wouldnt count on everyone who performed to all keep their level, AND to have everyone who underperformed to bounce back.
This is true, same could be said with Trading for a Vet like Nash because a change of scenery is a factor that will affect a players performance. Who knows how it will work, ask Montreal how trading for Gomez worked, or how Bure, Drury, Redden, Holik, all worked for us?
The only thing we know for sure with any move is the Dubi, and Staal have played here for four plus years, and for the past 4 years have shown they can put up better numbers then they have this year.
Richards, is a different case, only been here one year so not sure if this is the best he can do here, or if he will put up numbers more indicative of his past.
It is a lot different though saying that a player who had one down year out of 5 will revert back to his old self, then saying a player like boyle who had 1 good year out of 4 consistently put up numbers from his one good year
