No, of course not. This is because Richards just brings a few more intangibles like a higher compete level, and physicality that Pleks just doesn't have. Pleks has done well, I don't mind saying. But he does shy away from the physical play, and will probably always be that way. Most fans will not appreciate what Pleks brings to the table, but Habs fans do. But lets not pretend they are equals.
What trade are you taking about? I never heard this rumored trade proposal before.
