I think what I, and most other people want from Richards, is to be a difference maker. For 6.7 million/season, he is supposed to a difference-maker every game. If not, then he is highly overpaid.
Very true. He's piled up some points, but hasn't been the catalyst for our offense that his numbers would suggest.

However, I don't mind him being a 65-70 point players during the regular season if he continues to be money in the playoffs. His cap hit is high, but at the worst I can see him being our better version of Briere. He's unspectacular if not solid during the regular season, but a beast in the playoffs. I'll take that for now. Still want to see him be more of a difference maker now, though.
