I agree. And I get that players go through lulls but the issue is, the Rangers are paying him close to 7 million on the cap to carry the offense. They have help for him in that department with Nash and Gaborik. So far, Richards has been by far the worst of that trio.

And to top it all off, he seems to have no chemistry whatsoever with either Gaborik or Nash.
