i'm w/o a doubt more concerned about richards than stepan--- but once again it's who he is playing with. nash and gaborik do all the work, richie doesn't need to do anything
Richards is overrated, looks out of shape and takes way too many dumb penalties. If we don't do anything significant this year in the playoffs(and I personally feel we are going to be picked off in the 1st round if we are a 4th seed or lower), I would seriously consider buying out Richards, get his bloated contract(along with Redden's 5.5 mil) off the cap and go strong after Getzlaf and Ryan(Perry will most likely be resigned unfortunately).
