He has good vision, and playmaking ability, thats about as far as it goes. He's past his prime now. Gotta get younger.

Sign Getzlaf.
Then what's Plan B if we buy out Richards and Getzlaf doesn't go to the Rangers?

Derek Stepan will be our #1C? He's a young Richards-light, in my opinion. We'll be on the market for a #1C again.

I know Richards looks bad, but he's still contributing. He is making dumb plays, but he still has enough skill to get it done while he looks bad.

He's not the sharpest right now. Just gotta give it time.
