His only full season in the AHL he posted a 30 goal season and the Moose lost in the conference finals. The same season Richards joined, along with Carter, an already stacked Phantoms team to win the Calder Cup.

I am not attempting to put Richards down and to me they are pretty much identical in terms of impact to their teams, in fact I think they are good comparables for each other.

I do, see I was only pointing out Richards accomplishments as to the poster, who claimed Kesler is a "much better" player than Richards. I originally claimed they were practically the same player, though I also admited Kesler has more talent, however I believe Richards is a better leader.
