The guy has 2 91 point seasons. He was Over a PPG with Dallas as little as only 2 years ago. With the way the Rangers play, I have no idea how Gaborik got 86 points in 2009 with us. We play a grind it out style and try to bang in shots from the point that get deflected. If Tortorella opens up the offense a bit more ( Like tonight's PP) Richards will be back annually scoring 75+ points a year. As the PP goes, so does Richards. He's good for 20 goals and 40-50 assists per season.
