I am just disappointed with Richards since he has done nothing to justify him being our 1st line center. He has a bunch of assists, but that doesn't say much. Look at the assist he got against the Islanders... He did not pass the puck, he missed one-on-one with Nabokov, twice, before Gaborik took advantage of it. Richards needs to be better. Also on the powerplay, it would be nice if he would pass rather than skating the puck into the O-zone.
We can win the Cup. Are we likely to? Not sure. If we get to the play-offs, we can maybe get one or 2 rentals and go all the way. Last year the Stanley Cup final had a 6-seed and 8-seed so who knows...
I'd rather him skate the puck into the zone rather than dump it from the red-line just so the opposing team's PK can pick it up.
But in all reality, the PP should be... Let Rick Nash build up speed from our defensive zone, get him the puck when he hits a head of steam at the red line, let him gain the zone with speed and size. How difficult is that?
